For my secret pal!

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer high- and/natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?

Good website. I am new to Columbus and would like to join the downtown Stitch & Bitch, but Yahoo wouldn't let me in--could you email me at eifyffe@earthlink.net? Thank you.
