Ok, I am new to this forum so I am not sure if this is where I should ask my question, or if this is something that has already been posted. If it belongs in a different forum, then the moderator can feel free to move it.

I have seen on here and in various knitting blog's that I have visited, reference to the frogpond. I've never heard this expression before; can someone explain that to me?

Also, is the abbreviation FO meaning "finished objects"? I understand that UFO is unfinished object, so I am just assuming the FO is finished object(s).

Welcome! The frogpond refers to the pool of yarn that is left after you "rip it (ribbit)" out of a project for whatever reason. FO is finished object, and an unfinished project is usually referred to as a WIP (work in progress).

At least that's my take!

A UFO can also be something that is never going to be finished!

Happy Knitting,
