Frogging

Frogging in knitting may sound really nice but its not. It means ripping out your knitting because you’ve discovered a mistake many many rows back. Usually I try to avoid frogging at all costs: either talking myself into being able to live with a mistake in the knitting (no one else will notice right?!) or giving up on the project and leaving it for years.

With this project I have gotten far enough that I don’t want to give up. I also know that living with the mistake is not really an option. The panel on the right is the front of the sweater – do you notice anything missing? I was concentrating so hard on the windmill design that I completely forgot to decrease for the armholes and also completely forgot to create a neckline. The arms I might get away with, but no neckline might be a bit uncomfortable! So after a few months of leaving it on the back shelf, I finally frogged it and am in the process of reknitting.
