Frog it back is our own knitting term for ripping out stitches because of a mistake. FTW is for the win. A term gamers say quite a bit.

You could say Clapotis FTW! to express excitement and appreciation for Clapotis.

You could also say FTL when you either don't like something. Say you hate fair isle..you could say Fair Isle FTL!

Now, seeing as I've been online since my first born was in diapers , I've seen/heard "owned" and "pwned" used more times than I care to mention. But since my son (almost 16 yrs old) is an avid World of Warcrafter, he says pwned/owned ALL the time. But you should have seen the look he gave me when I used "owned" in a sentence, in a very normal and serious manner. You'd have thought I had lobsters crawling out of my ears.

You know how grown ups freak out when kids say the F word? That's how kids feel when we say the "O" word (or heaven forbid, the "P" word)!

Cute cartoon. I agree with the others, he's quite talented. This from a yarntard who can't even draw a straight line.

Hey, I was just searching for the site to share the Yarntard cartoons with some friends and hoping to RSS subscribe to it, now that I'm using an RSS reader to keep up with my favorite blogs, but I got an error. Has your hubby's page moved? I hope he's still doing the cartoons, he is very talented!
