When you've got a lot of stitches to pull out, you slip the piece off the needles and "rip it, rip it, rip it"! That's where the term "froging" comes from.
Tinking, on the other hand, is "knit" spelled backwards and that's when you "un-knit" a row or part of a row backwards without pulling the stitches off the needle.
Might as well learn these important terms right off!
