I live in California in the Bay Area. I moved here from Wisconsin and I am so disappointed I never knew about Elizabeth Zimmernan. She was such a role model in many ways and just a wonderful lady. I'm 52 so I could have gone to her camps and stuff. We still have Meg and many others too. Well, I started knitting and crocheting in college and made afghans for 3 or so years. Restarted 3 years ago and its been so fun. The internet is an amazing place for yarn and knit/crochet addicts. I could stay up all night just surfing sites and downloading free patterns and learning from all the tutorials. I have a huge stash and love the touch, feel and color of yarn. I think I'll have to make one special ripple afghan for all my one and two skeins. I also LOVE THIS SITE.
