Computer geeks aren't the only ones who love acronyms. If you are knit-blog-savvy then you probably know the above means "work in progress", "finished object" and "knit in public". Local knit-blog star Bonne Marie Burns of Chicknits has a trunk show and show-and-tell at Arcadia Knitting (1613 W. Lawrence) today from 2-4pm. So ask Bonne questions about your WIP, wear your FO, and don't be afraid of KIP'ing.
