Common Abbreviations on this forum


#101

Is it be possible to update the OP with the acronyms that have been added in the posts?

I’ve read through all the posts but I have already forgotten the additional ones other folks have thrown in the mix.

TIA!!!


#102

what does K19 means??


#103

It means to knit 19 stitches.


#104

[B]K19: [/B]Knit 19 stitches, as in just use a knit stitch.

As for [B]foto[/B], are you sure it isn’t a Dutch person? For that is an existing Dutch word. It means “photo” :wink:
If this is really an abbreviation, it will be like the Dutch word [B]lol[/B]. This means “fun”. Imagine our surprise when it started to pop up in English :cool:


#105

Really?! Well, I’m not Dutch. I wasn’t aware of the use of FOto before I started using FWIW.

So, I’m a 31 year old male marketing guy who just found his love for knitting. My girlfriend of about 6 months has been knitting around me like crazy so the other day I asked her to teach me how and I got into it! And I was half-decent. So, she shared her craft with me, I shared my craft with her. You can find our content and knitting exploration all over social media at @YarnGonnaKnit and at our blog/website: http://www.yarngonnaknit.com

I look forward to learning as much as possible from all of you and having a live long journey of knitting. Also, I plan on getting into making my own yarns soon too! That seems like a lot of fun! PM me, I love to talk marketing too!

This is a great list and I love your FROG icon. It really expresses how I feel when I have to FROG. But can you please tell me what is a KAL?


#109

KAL means Knit Along. That is when you all use the same pattern. We used to have those regularly. Maybe we can see about it again soon.
