A Froggin I will go

I made a decision. I am frogging the ginormous cocoon sweater I slaved over for a week. There's six 6 ounce skeins in there! Once I'm done my paying jobs, I'm going to sit down and start. Ugh, I dread it, but it's too much yarn to let sit. I also have a sweater in a nice yarn I may frog. I read a tutorial and think I can do it. It depends on how well it goes if I decide to contine. I've been reading posts about people frogging thrift store sweaters and maybe I'll try. Three Olive did it and hated it. It'll depend on how I feel after doing the cocoon. Man, I hate frogging things. Oh well, 32 ounces of yarn is a lot, soooo.........................

if you are lucky enough to find a sweater that has been hand knit or has no serged edges .. then go for it.. mine had serged edges.. made for lots of short strings
i wont be doing it again soon that is for sure!

I just started on my first frogged sweater following the instructions from the thread on C'ville. The sweater had the good edges (with the thread tying them together, not the bad seared edges) and its worked quick and easy - nice size ball of yarn from the sleeve alone! Bonne chance!

It all depends on the sweater. And even then, sometimes it's a bit of a strugle to get a good piece of yarn coming free to wind up.

I personally LOVE it. I find it extremely satisfying to take a sweater apart, kind of like doing a puzzle in reverse.

Obviously, I have issues! ;)

I tried it once, but I didn't like it. the edges were hard to rip out (despite no serging) and the yarn was tiny tiny cotton...I probably could have found something, but the edges made it NOT WORTH IT. I'm sorry you have to frog something you already started! I hate when that happens.
