Okay knitters, why is it calling frogging when you pull apart a knitting project, in part or sum total?
After a fast start, Serenity literally became a pain to knit. I like the pattern. Despite the cables, it’s an easy enough design. However, the rugged acrylic I selected based on the intended recipient, soon proved too hard on my hands. As the rows got longer, it became harder to finish one or two rows before my hands ached so much I had to take a long break, or my fingers got numb and I had to quit.
After languishing almost a month with no progress, despite the April birth of the intended recipient, Gmarie helped me realize yesterday that I needed to throw in the towel. I haven’t done the actual frogging yet, but I have let it go in my heart and mind.
I’ve found that when I’m trying to force myself to knit something, I lose ALL of my knitting mojo. What about you? Does it happen with other crafts too?
I don’t really have any plans at all this weekend, so tell me about yours!
Oh – and see the fur-girls’ blog for an update… but not while you’re eating.
