I was avoiding mentioning that a yo is made when you knit a stitch because it can sometimes give the mistaken idea that all YOs are made by bringing the yarn to the front and knitting a stitch. The knit stitch is not part of the YO but in this case happens to be the next stitch in the pattern. Sometimes the next st written will be for a k2tog, or sl 1, k1, psso. You wouldn't knit a st after bringing the yarn to the front in those cases. So I wanted to stick to YO just being wrapping the yarn around the needle.
