Pondering Production

Just for kicks and found in Never Not Knitting! Page-A-Day Calendar, by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee also known as Yarn Harlot.

"Some of the confusion in knitting comes from variations in the lingo, which can change from place to place. Take one of the basic knitting fabrics: all purls on one side, all knits on another. To make it when working in the round, you knit all rounds. If you're knitting back and forth, you need to knit one row, turn the piece, and purl the next row. So, what do you call this? Depending on where you are, it might be stockinette, stockinet, or stocking stitch. See? Confusing-- especially to new knitters.
So what do really experienced knitter call this stitch? Boring, usually.
