Hi venusspeciment, I live in essex. there are quite a few here from the UK and all over the world. I joined a couple of months ago and have learnt a lot here in a short time. Everybody is very friendly, the only problem is that I now spend more time on KH than I do knitting.
If you are interested why don't you pop over to the charity page and look at the oddball baby blanket, a few of us from the UK have joined in and are making blankets to send back to the US.
