View Full Version : Frogging with a five year old

10-23-2007, 04:42 PM
I just (nearly) completely my husband's Christmas scarf. It was a Green Bay Packer scarf, knit lengthwise. I bound it off and realized that it was, quite possibly, the World's Lamest Scarf.

So, my five year old helped me to frog it. He held the yarn and ran, and I sat still. Then he started spinning with it, and became "Yarn-Man Christopher!"

Isn't that just the best super-hero ever? :roflhard:

Anyway, I'm literally back to square one with this scarf. I don't even have any thoughts as to what to do with it. I thought I'd be mad about having to frog it, but I'm kind of relieved. I guess deep down I must have known that it was a crappy scarf.

Any ideas for a good football scarf pattern?

That sounds something like my kids would loved to do:)

I did a football scarf for a friend for Christmas. It's the one on the left in the photo below.

It's a basic basketweave pattern (4x4 blocks), 7 blocks across, and 6 blocks high before I changed the color. I did a total of 13 blocks. IIRC, I used a worsted weight yarn.

My Daughter discovered what frogging was yesterday. She is working on her first scarf and she slipped a stitch and I had to show her how to go back and fix it. She doesn't think that frogging is funny anymore, LOL!

I think Yarn Man Christopherneeds his own uniform.

Though since his real name is part of his superhero name, keeping his true identity secret may be a little hard.
