YO = Yarn over.
If the next stitch after YO is a knit stitch, you simply bring the yarn to the front of the work, and then you knit the next stitch.
If the stitch after the YO is a purl stitch, you wind the yarn completely around the right-hand needle from front to back, and then purl the next stitch.
If this is not clear, there should be a video explaining it on this site.
WHat sort of things are you doing as Christmas gifts? Sorry to be nosey!![/b]
Not nosey at all. I'm working on sweaters for a couple of my nieces. An awesome beaded silk sweater for my mom. Some newborn hats for some of my pregnant friends/relatives. And for my sister to give to her kids/nieces/etc. I'm making a couple of hats & ponchos with yarn that I can't afford to buy for myself right now So we both win with her getting the stuff and me getting to use the great yarn. I'm probably working on more than that but I'll remember it all in the new year when it's too late. I'm on bedrest right now until I find out what's going on tomorrow so I've spent a lot of time sewing all of my unfinished projects (UFOs) together...that's always a rewarding task when you get to it. I'm going to post a link to a pic of the sweater for my mom since I love it so much. I'm making the short sleeved version for her *although I prefer the long sleeves, she likes the short one) in olive colours with the beaded yarn shown in the long sleeves as oppose to the sequins in the short sleeves. Are you sorry you asked yet
nix, I LOVE that sweater you linked to, it's been on my to-do list for months! If I ever end up making it, I'll have to substitute though cause there's no way I can afford that yarn!
Fiona, the baby blanket is looking good! I'm hoping to start working on baby things after I'm done with the Christmas knitting. There's still a lot of time to wait before we even start trying but I'm a slow knitter so why not start now!

It took me forever to decide to buy the yarn for the sweater as it's a gift. I searched for an equally long time to find the best deal I could on it...then kept it all for a good part of a year before I got brave enough to knit with that beautiful yarn. It's worth it. I could never afford to do it again, but it feels so wonderful. I will probably make it again for myself with a substitute. Let me know if you do and what you use.
