Common abbreviations used in knitting patterns

You are happily knitting your Children in Common sock when suddenly you come across an abbreviation in the pattern that you've never seen before. You're told to SSK or to PSSO and you have no idea what's expected of you. You panic, then you think,  "I know! I'll write to the list." but...it's 2:00 a.m. and you know no one is going to respond until morning. "OH NO!" you cry. "Whatever will I do?"
  Relax...the answer is but a click away.
