NPR recently took a look at some special terms used by knitters with the help of Laura Birek (author of the awesome Picture Perfect Knits), who discussed frogging (ripping out knitting) and the sweater curse (if you knit a sweater for someone special in your life, he or she will break up with you soon after).
You can listen to the report here (though when I listened to it the end cut off). I love this little bit of spreading knitting lore and lingo to the muggles!
Do you have a favorite knitting acronym or word that the normals wouldn’t understand? I’d love to know!
