*&@#%! Dang it!
Sigh.

I just frogged something and started it again. Looks like I missed a stitch on the 2x2 ribbing so I guess I have frog it again. I"m only a few rows in but I'm SO not in the mood to this over!

Crap.

i know the feeling. i think i've resigned myself to the fact that i cannot complete a project no matter how small and simple it may be without frogging at least once. sometimes i just have to temporarily give up and have a good cry. tea's good, too. so is breathing.

then after a few days i attempt to without again. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Yesterday I a Log Cabin Sock I had already turned the heel on. My 3 sons thought it was fantastic fun~me? not so much! LOL.

But I knew I wouldn't be happy with it as it was coming out too small

Still. I *hate* frogging-I sympathize with you!!

I'm such a dolt! I was doing 2x2 ribbing w/o a multiple >>>
of 4 stitches cast on.

D'OH!

That's a newbie (me) for ya! I get to the end of the row, I'm working with 90 stitches (now corrected), I'm down to the last 4 and I'm excited because I have to knit 2 and purl 2 and I have enough stitches. Problem is, I'm ending with a K2 instead of a P2 because I didn't do the math!

Problem corrected. Here we go again! Better luck this time!

Now that you've taken it out.... you can do 2x2 ribbing on 90 sts, it's just that you'll end with k2, so will start the next row with p2.

What is frogging and how is it done? Is there a video on it?

I feel your pain. My dd (2) decided to "knit" my first sock for me. I was about to bo. There were so many teeny tiny dropped stitches in various places that I decided it would be best to frog it (rip it) all out and start over again. To calm me after that, I set the sock knitting aside to do a shrug, and ended up frogging that 2x. Maybe I should just do a simple dishcloth, I don;t think I can handle much more frogging in such a short period of time.

Frogging is just ripping out your work... you rip-it, rip-it, rip-it...
