on frogging socks

September 3, 2008 at 8:42 am 3 comments

Everytime I let a pair of socks sit up in the knitting basket, they get frogged.  Seriously, case in point, these socks here – frogged!  Or these socks that I had all good intentions of making for my Mom – frogged!  Or how about the cute little Twinkletoes I wanted to make for L. – frogged! (but only because I suck at short rows)  And sure, I could go on about how I begin socks but then frog them for one reason or another (each one with a very valid excuse).  So when I picked up L.’s Little Guy socks this past weekend, I was thinking that finally I would be able to get over this whole curse thing that I have of start and then frogging socks.  ahem, nope!  I snuck in a few rows here and there hoping that I could keep with it, and well, I ended up frogging them last night.  dammit!  I thought I could cure myself of this. 

In my defense though, I re-casted on and am trying to work out a pattern to make a child size version of the Vine Lace Socks I had half made for myself (yep, it’s buddy is sitting up in the knitting basket, but I don’t think I’ll frog him because I already have the first one done).  Let’s just hope that I follow through with it, don’t let it sit around for months, and then ending up frogging it.

    I know I do Lisa, I tried once before but got lost as to where my start was (forgot to put a marker) and got my yarn sorda tangled. It’s on my “to learn” list (right under quilting).
