12-Step Program for Sock Addiction - Step 5

Step 5 - Making amends for these errors.

To frog or not to frog, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler with the fingers to suffer
The strings and needles of outrageous patterning,
Or to take yarns against a sea of troubles,
And by pulling to end them: to unravel, to knit
No more; and by knit no more, to say we end
The heartache of a boring pattern,
To do the thousand natural socks
To frog, to sleep before casting on again,
To sleep, perchance to dream; Aye, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of no current,
What dreams may come?
When we have shuffled off this pattern for lace or cables,
Must give us pause.


  1. ok? The flooding sounds beyond horrible...

  2. Thanks for asking, Betsy. It is pretty nasty here. Fortunately, for us, we live in the foothills above the city, so all the water is flowing downhill. Most of the flooding is north of us between Boulder and Fort Collins. We have received as much rain in the last three days that usually get in two years. Both of my sons are safe (one in Fort Collins and one in Aurora), but driving is a bear!
