It got bought by someone else, and it could be Berocco as their new site looks very similar.

You took the words right outa my mouth! (WHAT HAPPENED TO KNITTINGPATTERNCENTRAL.COM????)

Anyway, I'm very relieved to know that someone has picked up the pieces, and KnittingatPlay.com is the continuation of a very good thing. phew

We must applaud folks who provide these useful sites! I doubt they're financially compensated equal to the work and time they've invested. The Ravelry owners are the only individuals I know of who have become millionaires for their work and creativity.

Since I usually just use Ravelry I didn't even know this! Glad it's being continued as a new site.

I must've discovered knittingpatterncentral.com after it changed hands or something 'cos it looks the same to me as I remember it. Even has the story of how it came to be on the front page.

What front page? You mean the forum name Pattern Central? That's just a coincidence.

I found Crochet Pattern Cental a long time ago, maybe 10 yrs. or more ago, before I considered knitting something I could ever do. The change must have occurred before you found them.

No, I'm talking about the "Home" page of http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/

There's a story there about how the site came to be...
