Yarn Along- Frogging

Have you ever had yarn that you fell in love with, but then couldn't figure out what it was for? Well, that has been the case with this yarn for months. I started out knitting a scarf in 1x1 ribbing, but the stripes weren't coming out like I had hoped. So I ripped it out. Then I tried a scarf in stockinette with a border of garter stitch. I loved how the stripes were going, but it still rolled something awful. I tried blocking a small piece to see if it was worth continuing, but it was not. So out that came too. Then I tried a reversible stitch pattern of K2, P1. Back to the stripes not looking right. Frogged again! Finally, last night, in the middle of the night, as I was trying to convince Therese that it was not time to be up, I searched on Ravelry for one skein projects using sock yarn. I found this pattern. It is turning out just how I hoped! Whew!

The book I am borrowing from a friend. I am learning SO much. It is an easy read explaining economics. Something that I have never really understood, but wanted to. I would recommend this to anyone who is confused by economics.

Look at that jumble of rumpled up yarn that has been frogged three, count them three times! It is still pretty though, isn't it? Stop by Ginny's to see more knitting and reading posts.
