Welcome!

Thanks for stopping by my Knitting Glossary (for Muggles!)page!  I have created this list of knitting terms which I hope to continually add to, mainly for the benefit of my non-knitting reader friends, but also just a place to define some knitting terms.  This is a work in progress so please bear with me!

Click on any letter at left to jump to that section, or scroll down to the list below.

Enjoy!
