According to Wikipedia (the librarian in me just cringed, I kid you not), jargon is defined as esoteric but precisely defined terminology used for ease of communication between specialists in a given field, whereas a buzzword (which often develops from the appropriation of technical jargon) is often used in a more general way, inaccurately or inappropriately. Whether you call it jargon or a buzzword, the point is that - as Knitters - there are words in our craft that carry a special weight, a special meaning. Kinnearing. Wildfire Patterns. Ravatar.
When I settled on my next project, I realized it tapped into some of the MAJOR knitterly jargon. Words that MEAN something, you know?
Advanced. Shetland. Gossamer (!!!).
