Frogging 1st BF sock…

Posted in Knitting at 10:46 pm by Jennie

I sadly went through with it. I made myself take scissors to the sock. My heart was beating so fast. The hardest part was taking that first snip. To cut up something that I had worked so hard on was very depressing. But once I heard it rip, that was it, I was on a mission to get this sock ripped and rolled. It took a bit of cutting to even get the sock to frog properly. As you can see in the pics, I had quite a bit of tid-bits all around. I thought I was gonna roll the yarn into a ball, but it became so tedious. Then a bright idea, ahhh use my yarn winder, and after that, ripping was pretty darn fun. I decided to just keep the yarn on the tube and I’ll just knit from it. This way, it’ll give me motivation to finish the darn sock so I can use my winder.

It took quite a few snips to get it to here.

You can see all the bits and pieces that came from all the snips.

I finally was able to get acutal yarn that would unravel correctly.

Bright idea to use my winder to help me wind as I frogged.

So now I must knit from the cone. This will be incentive to actually finish.
