It is a serious question. I am genuinely interested in your opinions. I have been knitting for the first time in ages. I had forgotten all about frogging and tinking. I do not like either which is probably why I have not done any knitting for ages. Frogging is when it is all off the needles and you are unraveling your knitting. I always imagine someone impatiently pulling the rows of stitches out and the yarn makes a soft 'ribbbit ribbit' sound, that is why it is called frogging! I am not sure if that is why it is called frogging or if I made that up. Tinking is to tink, to knit in reverse, to unknit. I really do not like frogging or tinking.
I think the question to frog, tink or leave is dependent on several factors. Usually I leave! I am fine with imperfection. This knitting was cursed before it even got started. I bought some lovely Aran yarn, enough to knit both boys matching jumpers, well they both hate the yarn and the pattern I chose! I am sure they would have liked it they are just being difficult! The youngest has asked me, "Who are you knitting that for?" "Some grateful recipient!" I replied.
I like knitting, I like being able to knit and to crochet and to spin. I need to know how to rear sheep now. I hate tinking. I must have got distracted or carried away and out of almost one thousand stitches eight are wrong. Eight! Only eight. Eight, big, ugly stitches in the wrong place. I tried ignoring them so I would not have to frog or tink but they are shouting at me at every row turn. I can't carry on and ignore them. I am going to be tinking for most of today's craft time. Retreat can often be the best form of attack. Frogging is quicker but I would not get the stitches back on the needles. If I frog the lot I will not start again. Tinking it is.
