For you international folks, I've run this site through an online translator, into multiple languages. You can now view a (hopefully readable) translation of this site in:

:!: Note: if you share one of these links with someone, please let them know that the forum is English-speaking. (Since, to them, it will appear to be in the translated language.)

This (http://babelfish.altavista.com/) is the translator I used.
(Cool, huh?!)

Dear Amy,

I have just checked your link to the Italian translation for your website and have to say that it makes little sense. I would be glad to give you a hand with the translation if you want me to. I find your website very helpful.

ps. I forgot to say Italian is my mother tongue, but I have studied English for many years and have been living in UK since 2000.
But, more importantly, I have started knitting two weeks ago, yeah!

Best wishes,

Hi Earthling!

I'm not surprised that the site has lots of mis-translated words. I have just used an online translater to do the job as best as it is able. It's not meant to be a great translation, but just something more readable than the English site, to those who don't speak English. I'm hoping that, for the most part, the pictures and videos will speak for themselves.

I don't have the resources to seriously undertake a properly translated site. But thanks so much for the offer!
