1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you let a muggle down nicely when they ask you to knit something? on: June 18, 2007 01:18:24 PM
I actually knit for a lot of people because I love to but when I don't feel like doing it, I offer to teach them how to knit.  I most often happens at my daughter's school, kids see her some in with hand knit items and they want some, usually socks.  I'm thinking about teaching a knitting class in the after school program.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I feel stupid asking but what does "FO" mean? on: April 10, 2007 06:23:11 AM
FO is a Finished Object.
Some other oft used abbreviations are:
WIP - Work In Progress
KAL - Knit ALong
LYS - Local Yarn Store
SEX - Stash Enhancement eXcursion

It goes on and on, DPN, DH, Etc.

Hope that helps.   Cheesy

I've used this bind-off from Grumperina's blog.

Work 2 sts in pattern (either knit or purl).
Move yarn to back (if the last worked st was a knit, this is already the case).
* Transfer the 2 worked sts to the LH needle, and k2togTBL. Work 1 st in pattern (move yarn to back if it was a purl), *
repeat between *.

Hi Sherry, I had a great time making them and I think it will be the holiday present of choice next December (last year it was mostly scarves, see below).  I did end up buying the suede pathes for the bottoms because Grayson told me that wearing his slippers was like ice skating int he house.  Did you put anything on the bottoms of your slippers?  I'm especially interested to hear from anyone who put flexible fabric glue on the bottoms.

This is great!  I used Google's translation tool to view the page in English (mostly).  It translated enough for me to figure it out.
