No Crafter likes to frog. I have just recently learnt an anti frogging technique from a student no less! This amazing young women went from novice to expert in about 3 months. She knitted a complete adult cardigan with a tealeaf pattern which she completed, blocked and sewed. I am very proud of her. That isn’t all though as she also taught me the technique of the lifeline. If you look carefully you will see a red cotton thread through a row. It reminds me of a video game technique. Every time you get past a difficult stage, instead of “save game” you “insert lifeline”. I found with very soft yarn like the one above it is better to use a silk thread like in the photo otherwise if you use yarn it can stretch the stitches. I learnt that the hard way and had to double frog. Oh the frustration! An experienced knitter or Crafter can have the same effect by using a stitch marker as in the one here.
It reminds me that we are always learning if we are open.
Have you learnt anything that has helped you along the way lately?
