~*Visiting The Frog Pond*~

















Be warned this is a cautionary tale and so if your a knitter this may be to upsetting to read;)
I have been for the last week sick with a nasty bug and knitting a shawl.
Realizing to late one shouldn't knit while sick.lol
My stitches just didn't look right so this morning I frogged it.
I'm feeling much better so I'm going to knit up some swatches on smaller needles and restart the shawl it will be a birthday present for my friend Lizet.
The yarn is The Plucky Knitter Super wash Merino,Fingering in the colorway Hey Cupcake! and it does look like yummy pink frosting:)

Really cute cupcakes! Sorry you were feeling sick and that you had to frog the shawl. I have to say that is the neatest frog pond I have ever seen. Mine are all over the floor!

The pink color is gorgeous and I'm looking forward to seeing it finished.

Oh that pile of frogged yarn is painful to look at - hope the second round goes better!
Great cupcakes!

I'm afraid of frogs... but not the ones on cute cupcakes like those and not knitting frogs. Hope you'll be feeling better real soon and the knitting frog will soon be forgotten.

Sorry you are feeling sick and had to rip out your knitting. I am used to having to do that. LOL I am just learning to knit, so I know I will learn lots from your blog. Thanks for visiting mine. Winona
