still looking for my ideal framework
I started following Framework Basics. The course covers two frameworks: Bootstrap and Foundation, but I wasn't crazy about either system. They both involve LOTS of extraneous markup. Divs are wrapped in divs and more divs.
So, I'm still looking for a framework.
You could always make one for your own use. Then you know exactly what's going on and have complete control over the markup. Time consuming? Maybe, but you're not going to find a framework that doesn't have extra markup somewhere.

For the most part I suggest people use something like purecss. In general when learning I recommend you not use anything from bootstrap you can't write yourself.
So I suggest learning about the various things bootstrap abstracts away
- start with purecss
- add in some icon fonts from font awesome
- make it responsive with media queries & flexible images
- learn about Sass and dry up some of the code
- add in JQueryUI if you an accordian or progress bar etc.
