Title: Knitting Jargon
Post by: Sister Wolf on July 06, 2009, 03:48:55 PM
So sometimes it's not really clear (ESPECIALLY if your'e a newbie to knitting) what the HELL just all of those abbreviations and funny words mean in the knitting world.

I'll make this as complete as I can:


So those are the terms.

Now for the abbreviations!

If you're working with double pointed needles, and are making a stocking, or a mitten or an arm hole to a sweater, or whatever, you use ALL FIVE needles that come in the packet.  I'll either find a video or make a video of that shortly.

Whoa!

This is all too confusing to me. How about I provide and wool and you provide the sweaters and socks?

I'm all over it! It'll cost you, but I'd be MORE than happy to make you some stuff.  ;D

the one that kicked me was ssk (slip, slip, knit.)  I figured out you could knit through the back loop and get the same effect.  :)
