KMaholics
This group originated in Belgium (March 2006) and started with a handful of French-speaking knitters.
It quickly grew into an international board with 157 members as of today (7 October 2006).
All our messages are in both French and English. Some members translate their own messages and, for the rest, I translate them myself.
All makes of knitting machines are represented. Any knitting level, from beginner to expert.
We share our experience and experiments, our problems and solutions, help each other and try to give as many hints and tips as we can.
The group is strictly moderated and every member and message has to be approved. This is because each message has to be translated but also to avoid nasties reaching our resources.
We have a database, links, photo albums and files at our members' disposal.
Please visit, join and enjoy - Loulou
