Most patterns use 'sm' for slip marker, not move marker. I don't think I've seen a pattern write 'mm'.

Perhaps it is because I frequent the crochet section more than the (knitting) Pattern section. I am sure I saw more than one pattern using the mm notation. They were aniguri or some funky work for little stuffed animal patterns. Yes, I am sure it was in crochet patterns for in-the-round work. You have to move the marker in crochet as it is through a stitch (or around a post) and not on a needle as it would be in knitted patterns.

That could be unique to crochet then, since the marker has to mark a stitch, not be on the hook as in knitting. I used to crochet a bit, but nothing that required markers much and I just used a piece of thread if I needed to.

I've notice the use of OP
When I've seen it, OP seemed to mean Original Post or Original Poster that started the thread.

I didn't see it in the list, has it been mentioned or discussed?

Wonderful info
Hello,
I love the little "frog" icon. That is so cute.
I had come to post a question of what the "UFO" meant and found this.
I am new here. I can see already that this is a great site.
