Hi everyone, Im new to this forum but hope to be hanging around for a while. This looks like a fun project to join in on when I have enough leftover wool. Im new to knitting so Im still trying to understand all of the terminology, what does KAL and KH stand for? And what does frogging mean? I checked the glossery but couldnt find an answer.

Welcome!

KH is short for Knitting Help.

KAL is short for Knit-A-Long, or Knitalong.

Frogging is the act of taking your knitting off the needles, and then pulling out the stitches. Some knitters frog just a few rows and then immediately re-knit them correctly; some knitters frog the entire mess and either re-knit it, OR wind up the yarn and call it quits.

Thankyou for the welcome and explanation ArtLady, the KH and KAL should have hit me straight away, with so many knitting abbreviations I just assumed they were others to add to the list.

Now frogging, I have done that and didnt know its name, a painful yet ironically fun process in a naughty kind of way.

original design seamless blanket
I made this blanket last year (it took me three months, but that is because I worked on it on and off)



30.5 x 33.5
lightly inspired by modern art baby blanket, but only very lightly
entirely seamless (border is even in log cabin style construction)

fun fact-this started out as a gauge test of the yarn

What a gorgeous blanket! It's a wonderful combination of pattern and colors. That's some gauge swatch.

lol.

it started out as a gauge swatch for a round blanket. then I mentioned to my mom that I wanted to try this other idea, the rectangular log cabin style blanket idea. she said "go for it". so I worked with the two colors I had (the yellow and green were both leftovers) and she later took me to Michaels to pick out another color to go with those two. (the border was put on in september; I started it in June)

so....the origin of the word "frogging"....it really means to rip out, undo, de-knit, go back to the beginning, or to the beginning of the mistake....

and it's called "frogging" cuz that is the sound a frog make: "Rip-it, rip-it, rip-it....."

am I right? or is there a more 'scientific' as in biological reason?
