has become one of my favorite sites to browse and shop at. After
selecting my first sweater project (with two scarves under my belt),
I wanted to find the exact yarn used in the project. I visited several
stores, and kept coming up empty-handed. A quick search online yielded
Patternworks, and Im now hooked. Their site is easy-to-use,
and their selection is remarkable--find yarn galore, patterns, books,
needles, kits, and software. I promise you wont be disappointed!
Not only does U2.com
have up-to-the-minute news about all things U2--the best band in
the world, but they present it in such a fantastic way. If your
U2.com experience is at all lacking, visit the message boards at
to see what the buzz is among the fans.
(stands for Internet Movie DataBase) offers a wealth of information
on the movie/television community. I must go there at least three
or four times a week to check out where I know that one actor from,
that one in that movie with that guy and that girl
in it! Search by name, movie title, plot, character name, or quote.
When you know youve seen the lead singer of the band in the
dance scene in Better Off Dead, but just cant place
her, IMDB will jog your memory, "Oh yeah, she was Dottie in
Pee-Wees Big Adventure."
