finish_or_frogSo I have been slogging away on the never ending sleeves for my brother's Cambridge Jacket and I was thisclose to being finished. I was 6 rows away from binding off. When I realized that for the last 16 rows I was only decreasing at the beginning of each row when I should have been decreasing at each end. So I had to frog 16 rows. I can't tell you how frustrated I was after that. It didn't help that this happened while I was playing D&D with my girls group and I kept rolling 1's in my attempt to become unstuck to the equivalent of a kobold fishing rod.

It made me think that I had to develop some better ways of coping when knitting goes badly, because seriously, pouting to myself doesn't help.

So here are some frogging links:

Knitty's definition of frogging.

About's definition of frogging.

About's tips for fixing your knitting mistakes.

Beth's Crafts is dealing with a frogging situation. I totally understand when she says she has to compose herself before starting again.

There is a Finish it or Frog it KAL for those people who need help completing those UFO's.

Blooming Knitter is also having a heck of a time with frogging.
