sheep and amphibians

We've just received some great laceweight* cashmere yarn from Art Yarns. The sheep can't seem to stay away from it. Stop in the shop and see. It's definitely got that oo-la-la factor.

*Correction: the yarn pictured is actually Artyarn's Cashmere 5, a 5-ply yarn that knits at 4.5 stitches per inch on 8's. Definitely NOT laceweight. Sorry!

What biblical plague do knitters dread most? You guessed it -- frogs!!!

Helen doesn't look very happy to be reminded that in every knitter's life there are times when you've just got to rip it, rip it, rip it.

We invite you to share your frog tales in the comments....
