"I think Rhonda hoped for a raise to 1.50 but the funds really aren't there. I can see with the postal fees the appeal of the large distribution if it cuts fuel costs for a few months. "

Hi Mary, just saw your comment on Joan hand-warmers.  I agree they certainly are fabulous.  I see you are looking for a crochet pattern.  There is one in the KAS Pattern book.  It is very easy, if I may say so myself :-)   The only thing is to make sure the ribbing goes around the hand so the HW stretches as the child grows.  Looking forward to a photo of your crochet HWs.
