WIP

John called me up last night with a question. He wanted to know what the "WIP" under the photo of the hood with the cable on it meant.

I not only explained that it stood for Work in Progress, but I also explained more knitting acronyms than he ever wanted to hear:

FO stands for Finished Object, so of course,

UFO stands for UnFinished Object

Frog is the rippit, rippit stitch

And Tink (knit spelled backward) is, of course, un-knitting!

He suddenly had to rescue a baby bird from his driveway and feed the dogs, so he had to hang up.

I'm sure he was enthralled with all this information.

Not a lot is happening around here, so I'm going to quit blogging for the day.

Addition:

After I wrote that, I went to Ravelry, and was reading their weekly news, and found this:

On one of the discussion threads, someone (people shall remain anonymous during this post) said that she was going on a plane trip and wanted to bring along something to knit, but was worried about what she could take onboard with her, and asked for suggestions for a project.

The answer she got was: snakes! Someone said she should knit snakes on a plane!

The post referred her to a design for a snake themed scarf.

I should read Ravelry before I post.

Here is an article on Ravelry about the BBC clashing with some knitters over Doctor Who. I haven't read the whole thing yet. I have  a busy day planned, but I will read it very soon.

There will probably be more discussion about this tomorrow. Pay attention. There may be a test!

Have a great Wednesday!

I'm sorry about the info on Ravelry. I just found out that you can't go to the link or read it unless you already belong to Ravelry.



Here's a photo of the bird John went off to chase.
