Finish or Frog Friday

It's Finish or Frog Friday once again.


I hoped to have a finished item today, but it's looking doubtful. Rather than spend the day stressing over it, I decided to go ahead and frog something this week. Can you guess what's getting the axe?


Good-bye, crocheted Swiffer cover.


I started this project when another urge to teach myself to crochet hit. I figured a Swiffer cover was a good choice, because if my stitches were sloppy (which they are) it really wouldn't matter much. After all, I was just going to use it to mop the floor.

I do feel that I've finally gotten a grasp on how to crochet. I even learned a couple of "fancy stitches". But in the end, the love is gone on this project and I have no desire to finish it up. Quite frankly, the stitch-work is so uneven and ugly, it's an embarrassment to crafters everywhere.


Farewell, little project. Back to the stash, ball of cotton. I have a feeling you'll be reincarnated as a wash-rag some day.

I didnt have the heart to tell you that the swiffer cover was really bad . Im never critical, so that was just an observation. YOU MAKE GORGEOUS things. I guess your sugars were off the day you wanted to make that thing. Hahahahahah. I hope I made you laugh. Im blaming this on Pea. He should have tested you right away when you considered that project! Im glad someone else shares their knitting mishaps too! I always do!

I'll bet you're feeling great, having one less project to hang over your head! Frogging is so catharctic.

Poor little Swiffer rag:(

Good bye Swiffer cover! It is time for bigger and better things--or maybe to just hang out with your fellow yarn balls for awhile. Either way, it's all good.
