Joyful Frogging

Katia Florida
"Wildflowers"




This yarn is so beautiful - I love TOUCHING it!


I have been knitting the Katia Florida Summer Top (see blog below). Today, I decided it was not going to fit me properly and that sent me back to look at my pattern instructions. Seems I must have had a lapse of thought when I started this because I was using the wrong size needles! Nothing to do but to begin the frogging process and start all over again. I was using size 6 needles, instead of the size 10 that the pattern calls for. I am back on track now, and the frogging fun is over for now. It does take patience and tenacity to knit, doesn't it?

The second photo shows my progress on the Katia Florida Summer Top that is on the needles. This is the one I started again, after I frogged the first one. I am nearly finished with the back and will begin the front tomorrow, hopefully. I want to wear this sweater when I leave on a trip in two weeks. If is so nice to touch and I think it will feel so good to be wearing it. I am crazy about this yarn from Elann.com
