As a knitter and crocheter, I have had plenty of experience frogging. But I have never chosen to frog voluntarily. I am currently making a baby afghan for a friend who is due in July. I picked a simple pattern because I knew the warmer months are coming. Basically, it's k10, p10 for ten rows, then p10, k10 for ten rows. You end up with a basket-weave pattern. It's easy and cute. But I wasn't having any fun. It was more of a chore. "I guess I should work on the blanket for D's baby." So, today, I did something I have never done before. I ripped it all out. Granted, I had only done about 25 pattern rows, (plus ten rows of garter stitch border) but it is all gone. When I had nothing but a pile of kinked yarn on the floor in front of me, I felt...happy. And...liberated. I sat and looked at the yarn. The Man asked if I was okay. I have now started on a new pattern for D's afghan. A log cabin. And I'm having FUN!
The moral to this story: Don't be afraid to frog if you're not happy with what you are doing! Knitting and crocheting are supposed to be hobbies for me, not chores!
