I can't wait to get started.

bonjour, je veux vous remercier pour votre gentillesse et pour tous les modles


I love so many of the patterns, but when I go to print them off there are all the comments printing off that I was numerous sheets of paper. Is there anyother way to print off the pattern withoug all the comments?

When you want to print a pattern it's best to copy and paste it to something like Word or whatever you use for just regular writing on your computer. This way you don't get the comments just exactly what you want, the pattern.

sandi, Are you the spelling is correct? You might want to try snood.
