I have knitting ones too, but I can only loom knit. One of these days I will learn to needle knit.

They go back to the '70's but most of the are from the '80's and early 90's (before I had internet). The best part is that since I joined this forum I am looking at these patterns with new eyes. Now I know I can do some of the projects better than ever because I have discovered the power of blocking and measuring!!!

I'm sorry your computer died! I've gone through that myself. Thank God I had all my patterns on a CD backup.
I have learned something recently. Those new little USB storage devices (flash drives) hold a LOT!!! They can carry what I used to put on 4 CDs! (maybe even more....)
So, invest in a couple of those little things, and you'll be able to backup stuff very easily.
