Frogging got ya UNHOPPY?? Rip it good...

Undeniably FROG is the four letter word of fiber arts. Nothing is more frustrating than finding a mistake rows back! We stare at it, squinting as we decide if we can live with it or not and then grumbling, sometimes LOUDLY, we rip, rip , rip it back so we can fix our error. FROG! We curse and gnash our teeth. I can not deny the frustration of watching row upon row reduced to crinkled heaps of yarn barf... BUT frogging is really an opportunity, a reset, a gift… I know, I know… Sounds, crazy, right? But hear me out with this gentle reframing of the dreaded FROG. When it comes down to it, we are so lucky in our craft that we can frog our work to make it something of which we are proud, something that brings joy to us and to others. We can reuse our materials and give it another go. This is amazing! So next time the dreaded word leaves our lips may we find comfort in the possibilities it provides. FrogShmog!
