dh, dd, ds, etc equals dear (or depending on your mood, any other d word) husband, daughter, son.

MIL, FIL, SIL, BIL--the inlaws

And the usual OMG and the like.

I'm sure others will come up.

Let's not forget WOTA - "Wool of the Andes" yarn from Knitpicks.com. It has become a STAPLE of the KH knitting diet!
