Or maybe this is posting...........I am so none tech.

I am an intermediate knitter..........and an absolutely over the top fiber lover! I met people from this forum at a hotel in Algonquin Illinois where they were attending the midwest fiber and folk art fair in Crystal Lake. If any of you are here please reply. I met you late Saturday evening as you all were knitting in the lobby of the Holiday Inn Express at Bunker Hill.
I went to the fair on Sunday.......thank you for the directions and it was a wonderful time!

Diann ....

Are you from IL? There are several of us here that try to get together on a regular basis. Keep an eye on the IL thread (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=30284) in the Knitters Knear You forum. Usually, we'll post there if we're planning a get-together.

Hope you can make it sometime!
