Not that frogging is a pleasant experience. In the past I have frogged while in progress. Today I'm going to share two projects that I have frogged after finishing. Both for very distinct reasons.
The first one is my Line Break shawl. This was knit for Camp Loopy which had a time limit of one month to make up. I did finish in time but am not happy with the result. For one thing, I had planned on adding a third skein of yarn to lengthen it. That couldn't happen with everything else I had going on so I bound off after two. There enters the other reason I am unhappy with this. I hate the bind off I used. It was supposed to make the edge very stretchy but it did the opposite.
As it is, I won't wear it in its present form. So the decision to frog it and reknit was made. This won't happen until the new year though but I want something that I will make use of often.
The second piece is my State Street Cowl. This is meant to be bulky and large enough to wear around the shoulders. Since my body is shaped differently than the model in the pattern photos, I decided to add extra repeats to make it a little bigger. Bad idea as this is just way too big on me. I don't even want to show you what the photos looked like of my wearing it. So intead, I took one with my feet in it so you can have a comparison for size.
This one was a quick knit. I think I did it in a weekend so ripping it out isn't that big of a deal. It still sucks but I want to make use of this one as well. I won't be reknitting it until after the new year but the yarn is ready to go.
This topic is a little different as it talks about flawed items and basically destroying them. Is this something that you have done? It doesn't have to be with knitting, but with any creative endeavor. I can't think of any sewing projects that have gone ary like this but that may be because I have them buried somewhere...
