A knitting emoji sometimes says it all. Like right now, I would say I feel exactly like "finished object." Through out the month, I have had my share of "all tangled up" both literally and figuratively. I have been doing somethings that defy knitting vocabulary and emoji. I decided there needed to be words for what I was experiencing so I began my search for the perfect words to describe what I have been working on.
I was searching for the perfect word to describe how I spent much of the month of January. I wasn't really knitting. What was I doing? I think I was "knabbling." I was dabbling in knitting. The is my definition of knabble: playful knitting, trying things, a combination of dabble and knit. I realized this described exactly what I was doing. Then when I thought about the searching and swatching, I decided to call it "kniterest." Kniterest means to search through books, magazines, Ravelry, Patterfish and Pinterest to find the perfect pattern. I also love the word "Knitterati" but Cascade is currently using it for their KAL.
So the two words of KNABBLE and KNITEREST have been born. Use them any time you are doing these two activities. Enjoy!
