ribbit

The blocks are done on the huge log cabin quilt! (crossing fingers, because when I laid it all out this morning, it looked alarmingly small...)



To answer DinoMatt's question from yesterday: “frogging” is knitting slang for realizing that something has gone utterly awry with your project (in this case, the sock was too big for my taste—it would have suited me fine back when I sported slouch socks, some eighteen years ago), pulling the needles out, exposing all of the live stitches grabbing the ball-end of the yarn and pulling out all the stitches. Crying may be involved, and likely red wine. Why do they call it frogging, you ask? Well legend has it that it that since the other way this activity is described is to “rip it back”. Now follow me here.…. rip it… ribbit… frog ….change the noun to a verb….frogging.

It's beautiful, sweetie! Congratulations on your WIP--looks almost finished! How many hours so far, would you say?

oy... funny thing is that it only took me two (long) evenings to do the eight blocks I orginally left out. I worked eight blocks simultaneously, rather than one block at a time, as I'd done previously, which must've taken me twice as long. So call that 16 hours, plus pressing and cutting the fabric... about 20 hours so far.

I never was good at math. 8+32=40 hours....
