vaudy @ 11:59 am: You know, I've been a member of this community for a year and have never posted. Anyway, I'm about to start grad school in River Forest, and I was wondering if anybody knew of any yarn shops or knitting groups (or any other interesting fibery things) in the River Forest/Oak Park area, or at least within spitting distance. Thanks!

unluckymonkey @ 07:36 pm: Hi! I'm Sam I Am

Hello! I'm not much good at getting around to posting in communities anymore. Here's some of what I've been into. I knit from the top down and don't use patterns. I'm always experimenting with different approaches and shapes of sweater and how to customize them further to fit better.

I think in the next year I'm going to write a booka bout my approach as it's not as complicated as the top down books make you think and they don't really cover out of the ordinary shapes/ideas.
