I'm almost done with the last item on a knitting to-do list I started some time ago. In order to feel like I am truly done with the list, I had one last item that I needed to frog, or rip out. (For those of you non-knitters that drop by occasionally, "frogging" is another word for undoing knitting. Here is a better explanation of the term.)
So today I got out my yarn swift, and let it rip:
My swift came in handy turning this:
|18 skeins of Debbie Bliss Soho. . . I got it on sale but still, what was I thinking?|
When I was going over my list of unfinished items and asking myself "Finish of frog?", this Ballet Wrap Cardigan ended up on the frog pile. I just knew the finished sweater would not look like the one in the magazine, and I would probably never wear it. If it had been a pullover, I probably would have taken the time to seam it, and then would have donated it to afghans for Afghans. But I don't think they take wrap-style sweaters. They do have a new youth campaign going right now. So, maybe after the Christmas presents are done, this yarn has a better destiny as a nice, easy, and warm child's pullover. That would really be satisfying.
