Rip it! Rip it! Rip it! The knitters definition of "FROGGING"!

Skew has bit the dust - temporarily.  I have decided to rip it out!  This sock will be made again.  The reason that I decided to "frog" it is because the gauge was WAY off.  I was measuring 3 1/2 inches wide when I should have had 4.  In ripping this out I will also be able to make the sock with the "proper" increases!  So here is frogging in a nutshell, step by step...

1. Remove needles

2. Pull yarn

3. Keep pulling yarn
4. You are done frogging when the yarn is in a wrinkly pile and no stitches are present


  1. Good for you! I always waver when it comes to frogging, but it's so much better than wasting time on a project that isn't working! p.s. totally love the colors in that yarn!

  2. very nice tutorial on how to frog! :)

  3. What a lovely pile of culicues!

  4. I did this for the 1st time last night. Made a boo boo and could not figure out how to fix it so I "frogged" it and am now starting over. Practice...Practice...Practice!!!
