Got me wrapped around their fingers

Parker ready to read to his younger cousin: hey look, he saved her bookmark.

When Holly was here in town several months ago, I showed her a project I was working on.

She admired the yarn, but as she did so, simply having another set of eyes looking at what I was making it into made me face that yes it was a doodle but no I didn’t like how the second half was coming out.

Finally today I sat down and risked it catching on itself all over the place and carefully ripped half of that little shawl back and reknit the now-squiggly length back up and past that point. It feels so much better.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you, starting with Stephanie, who have ever said you’ve never regretted frogging something that needed it:  at last I have a beautiful mink/cashmere project that I love and that lives up to what it should have been all along.

As it knit back up I gradually went from appeased pride, to, I can’t wait till the recipient gets it!

Meantime, Parker and his cousin, as usual, steal the show.  Birthday and Christmas season. Celebration times!

Frogging is good for the soul. So cathartic! And how cute are those babies?!!!

Good for you. This must have made you feel good all over and all under, too.

frogging is a good thing! it is almost as satisfying for stress release as breaking glass (never mind, I’ll explain that another day)

very cute babies they are!!

This may sound repetitious, but the youngsters are adorable!

I suppose the accounting equivalent of frogging is finding an out-of-balance error.
