bmay - I wouldn't worry about frogging too much... I've gotten very used to it.
But frogging a piece is about much more than correcting a mistake; it's a total learning experience. I've done enough frogging to know how really true this is.... and I find it kind of fun, if somewhat frustrating especially if you've done 80% of the work and find this really awful mistake about half-way down the piece...
The sweater I'm working on right now... I hate to admit it - but I've frogged it back 3 times now and I'm hoping like all get out that the 4th time is lucky.... so far so good.
But re-knitting is not a waste of time. Think of it as refining the craft of knitting so that the art of knitting will come shining thru one day.

I'm with Artlady and MoniDew on this one, any other colour would be too much and distract from the stitches. Stay monotoned for this one!

I knew it was a good thing (in its own evil, twisted, devil's advocate sort of way LOL) to help me learn.. but it just started getting frustrating after starting 7 or 8 separate projects, only to frog each and every one for some reason or another, never finishing anything at all (The fact that I kept wanting to "keep" my pretty yarn instead of using it for something didn't help either..LOL!)

But, as they say, "practice makes perfect"!!

Thanks I'm about 75% of the way done with it (starting on the crosses on the opposite end tonight). I'm hoping to get it finished before school starts back on the 7th so I can start on some winter stuff for the kiddos.
