If you like collecting patterns, especially free ones, don't miss Annie's Attic free pattern of the day. It only goes up for 24 hours then it's replaced with another so it pays to check and see what they have because I've found some gorgeous patterns there when I've remembered to check.
Especially today's (5/8/06), a beautiful, granny type MAM afghan.
Just thought I'd let you crocheters out there know. I don't think I've run across any knit ones but I sometimes forget to check and when I do check the patterns are usually crochet.
