So 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:
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.
Who's got some tips for coping with Knitting Gone Wrong! Share them in the comments, please.

I'm Angela. I'm an obsessed knitter.
Blogging about knitting since 2004.
What's going on now?
To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back.
