“Yo” or “Lost in Friggin Translation”

20130915-132928.jpg
My mother sent me a pattern for a dish cloth to try. Major yawn. I want make hats or something fun!

“Do it! It will teach you stitches you need to know!” Ma says.

Fine.

I start reading the pattern and it says “knit2, yo” and follows with more knitting.

I’m all excited like “Yo right back at ya!” And kept on trucking. A little while later nothing is looking like it should and I come to realize that “yo” is not an informal greeting from my pattern. It’s a direction.

Yarn Over.

Ahhhhh. Well damn. Why didn’t you say so? 3 YouTube videos later I think I’m finally getting it. I would ask my mom for help but she’s too busy laughing her butt off at me to be useful.
