Today I give you, unfortunately, my most-used term: frogging. Nope, I'm not talking about hitting up watery areas with my spear to catch the little green darlings. In this case frogging is unraveling your knitting and I mean huge chunks of your knitting, not one little row. (Imagine a little knitting frog cartoon saying "rip it, rip it" and you understand the term.) I think I've unraveled as much as I've knitted since I started five months ago, but today I actually get to show you an FO. (That's "finished object", for the non-knitter. Yeah, they've got some good acronyms, too.)

Since the yarn is so thick, I decided on a scarf. It's a very simple pattern and came out way longer than is ideal because I didn't want any of the yarn left over. Frankly, I'll never use yarn this chunky again. The patterns don't pop as they do with a worsted yarn and I have to use size 13 needles, which makes me feel like I'm knitting with a couple of cigars. Not meditative knitting at all.
If you're interested in making this scarf, the free pattern can be found here. (You'll need to sign up for a free account with Lion Brand to access the pattern.) Specifics on the scarf I made can be found on my Ravelry page here. (You'll need a free Ravelry account to access.)
