Secret Pals 4

Secret Pals 4 is a gift exchange event for knitters and crocheters from all over the world. This event will last February 1 - April 30, 2005.

The numbers are in...

These updates will start slowing down, but want to let you guys know what is happening.

First, I will post a questionnaire that you can fill out for your blog - but a little bit later. This questionnaire will let tell your SP what your likes and dislikes are, etc.

Second, I thought I'd let you all know the numbers we have so far. I've managed to get through the first lot of emails, so we have:

USA (including knitters with military postings in Germany)- 128
Canada - 8
France - 8
Other Countries - 20 (I'm not trying to neglect you, I just don't want to give away the ones that only have 1 or 2 particpants)

So just for fun, I'm putting up a contest.

Anyone want to take a guess what our final numbers for France might be at registration close - January 21st?

If you want to take a guess, please put your guess down in the comment section of this blog entry - just be sure to provide your name. (Please don't email me your guess - it will just add to the email madness).

The person who is the closest without going over will get a little surprise from yours truly. In case of a tie - of course both people will get a surprise.

Deadline to enter contest - Jan 20th.

I'll say 14. And btw, if it works out, I'd be happy to have an international secret pal. Just let me know... I'm a US resident already registered for SP4.

Thanks,
