Knitting Abbreviations

Wow! A lot of people have downloaded my free patterns from Ravelry, so I thought I'd better get in gear and post the knitting abbreviations that support the patterns. Not that there is anything unusual or complicated about the pattern, but I know every little bit helps.

By the way, thanks for visiting my blog. I'd really like to encourage you to share your comments here, and on Ravelry, AND post your projects and pictures on Ravelry. I'd love to see them.
