Knitting and frogging

I hadn't actually heard the term 'frogging' until I started knitting again last year and I must say, I still prefer 'ripping', which not only captures the sound of crunchy wool stitches being torn from existence but also the way it feels to tear said stitches.

That said, I spent most of yesterday either knitting or frogging, in equal amounts.

Probably I should have done more swatching before I started off on those socks I want so very much to be pretty, yes?

Sounds to me like your swatch is just a little bigger and more final than most! It'll be worth it in the end, I think!

So fustrating I know, but you will be pleased in the end !

It is a very big swatch, at that! And at least all it needs is tweaking... the stitch itself looks great with the yarn, which is more than enough to go on ;^)
