Oh, you are so right! I'm looking forward to seeing this finished project. Glad it's working out so well.

No progress to speak of today. Did try to get some done when the kids were home and have messed up completely. Looks like I'm now going to have to unravel all the stitches out and start over again. Can't find the motivation to do that. Feel so depressed about it and can only blame myself for not putting in the safety line you guys recommended but then I'd only knitted an inch up to that point, it's just being a beginner an inch can take so long to accomplish!!!

Can you just frog a few rows back to the mistake rather than frogging the whole thing?

You can frog back to the yoke and not redo it, can't you?

frog?

Yes the yoke is intact and boy am I glad the pattern called for that to be knit separate!

I just don't see how I got the pattern wrong as It's a fairly simple one over 11 stitches which is a series of P KBL and then k4 to finish grrr I'm so angry with myself.

Kids are such a distraction.

Frog: a frog says, "Rip it! Rip it!"

Sometimes simple patterns are hard because we know they are simple. Yes, kids are a distraction...but we love 'em anyhow. I'm glad you don't have to redo the yoke, that's a lot of good knitting, it is beautiful!

Good for you! Set backs and frogging are part of knitting. You always learn something from them. This will be fun to see complete.

I'm of the opinion that "frog" is simply the cleaned-up version of what you actually WANT to say when you realize you're going to have to rip out a bunch of work and start over.
