Bonjour!
Hi everyone,

I am really happy to have found that site!

I'm pretty new at knitting, already realised a scarf, fingerless gloves, a "monster" and now I'm working on a purse. A new passion is born...I'm in love with knitting

I live in Montreal, Canada.

I'm sure I will have a good time here!

Cheers!

Hi, Debilos, welcome! It sounds like you're off to a great start. What's your monster?

Bienvenue! We're glad to have you here at Knitting Help! There are all kinds of patterns for fingerless gloves on Ravelry (free to join) and this is a particularly nice one which Jan once recommended. I haven't tried them yet but they're on my list.

Nice to meet you, GrumpyGramma ( i love your nickname)

Actually, it's more like a kind of Alien instead of a monster ;-)
I try to post a pic, but it doesn't work :-(

Hello Joanne,

The world is so small. My mother just leave for a month of vacation to...Hallandale!!

I found a pretty cute pattern for my fingerless gloves on knitandbake.com. This site had several beautiful fingerless gloves patterns

I have no subscription yet, but i would like too. I heard good things about Interweave Knits.

I do not crochet for now. Maybe one day! I love knitted purses too

Thank you for your welcoming words!

À bientôt!

Thanks salmonmac!

There are, indeed, a lot of beautiful patterns on Ravelry. I would like to knit a lot of them ( but not enough hours in a day to do so ;-)

Thanks for the welcome!
