Hi, Is anyone here a knitting fan? I can find lots of websites offering translation of French knitting patterns. But that's not my problem. I have some English knitting patterns and I want to make sure I'm buying the right type of wool. So what are the French equivalent terms for: 3 ply, 4 ply, double knitting, Aran, chunky etc? I'm itching to get knitting again so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
Having holidayed here off and on for thirty years, I am in the throes of buying somewhere to live on this coast. Many years ago there were dinghys for hire at Port Vendres and dinghys presumably owner-sailed at Argeles. But I don't recall seeing much more recently. I don't have the money or the taste for even a very small gin-palace: is there any small-boat sailing, with sailsto be had round here? I have no prejudice against enclosed waters, but wouldn't want to drive very far to reach them: if only because that seems agst the spirit of the exercise
Hello I am looking for somewhere to store our caravan when not in use. We live in Aude, 20 minutes north of Narbonne. Many of the places that do this need 15 days notice to pick it up, which is no use if we decide on impulse to get away. So, if anyone knows somewhere handy that is secure please let me know. Thanks
A coffee afternoon in the centre of Carcassonne (on the Place Carnot) for any anglophone speakers, expats. The purpose is to meet new friends, to help exchange ideas with each other and to drink coffee or tea. French people are welcome as well but for speaking in English. If you think this would work then please add your thoughts to this thread.

Does anyone feel like joining a martial arts club in Béziers? The style is Viet Vo Dao from Vietnam and is a defensive style i.e. no combat, no competitions, just practising the art to improve your physical and mental state. The club has 40 members and we are only two brits at the moment. It's a great way to get to know locals as all lessons are of course in French. Contact me for more details if you are interested.
Hello. Having recently moved to Pezenas, I wondered whether any joggers out there or regular walkers have any recommendations for safe, relatively flat tracks nearby? Ideally somewhere where I could also take the pram would be great - around 4km or longer would be perfect. We moved from Revel where I used to jog around Lake St Ferreol (4.25km for one lap) - anything similar would be wonderful but not sure if it exists? Thanks so much!
