Hi there. I've come into possession of a set of knitting...leaflets, I suppose would be the right word... (You know, like those recipie cards that you have to join a club to get, and you put them into a binder? only knitting!)

And one of the great things about this is the fact that it came with a French, Swedish, Italian and German knitting...translat or of sorts. Kind of like a cheat sheet. Only knitting!


And I thought I should share this with the craftster community. The seperate "cheat sheets" will follow, and if you have any others, please just lemme know!

NOw, I don't speak any of the languages listed (except for a few naughty words in French), so I'm not up to date. This knitting leaflet set thingy was made... a while ago. Possibly the eighties. So if you see something outdated, or just plain wrong, please let me know so I can fix it.


Thanks!
