I was on row 77 of a baby afghan on my knitting board & I caught the finished part on the pegs & pulled out part of one of the rows again the 1st time I was only on row 51 & when I had to frog it I want to cry. Today I got really mad instead. I guess i should not use the knitting board when I have a migraine. the 1st time it took me a week before I could start over but today I wanted to start over as soon as I had finished froging it. I started it over for the 3rd time & hopefully it is the last time.

I don't use knitting boards, but why do you have to start completely over?

Sorry that happen to you. The sweater i just finished i had to completely undo 2 times. the one front i did 3 times. Then i got mad and it is now finished and no mistakes. Very frustrating and a lot of wasted time or maybe not. i did get it right. Just take your meds and start again.

Knitting with a migraine? Wow - I can barely hold my head up and have my eyes come in contact with light. Please take care of yourself -- try a little Vicks rub, gently rubbing it in to your forehead and in a "lights out" room - put an icepack on the back of your neck. After about 20 mins, lay on the floor next to a wall and extend your legs (as straight as possible) against the wall with yout butt as close to the wall as possible. Then apply the icepack for another 15-20 mins to the back of your neck. God Bless -

could you have run a life line and only take out the part the got caught? rather than taking out the whole thing?

I have the Knifty Knitters which are similar to the knitting board and I run a life line (a strand of contrasting color through the loops, this enables you to undo to the "life line" and re hang the loops on the pegs. )

Knitting board? never heard of it... or froging for that matter! But I admire the fact that you are sticking to it and going to make sure it gets done! Good for you!
Happy knitting today everyone!

I just had to start over on a knitted lace scarf that I dropped a stitch and just couldn't figure out how to put it back on the needle...I've started it twice, hope this is the last time. I sympathize with you!

Sorry you are in pain and it is causing you to rip and start over. Frustration often adds to the pain.

Migranes interfere with the thought processes. Try to avoid anything that requires concentration. Ice on the back of your neck generally helps relieve migrane pain. Laying down or sitting quietly while applying the ice generally helps also.

I have knitted for years and I am with these girls, I have never heard of a knitting board, please explain it to us.

For your Migrains try taking Vitamin B-2 ( Riboflavin ) it helped me.

I've been trying to get the Summer Shawlette by Sandi Wisehart done. I've ripped it back to the neckband lifeline 10 times and last night I decided I just needed to put it away for awhile and work on a simple baby hat for a friend's new grandchild. I'm so disappointed as I really like the shawlette, but reading the pattern is a pain in the you-know-what! I've never worked a lace pattern before, so maybe that's my problem. I had the same problem getting the Cabin Creek Top Down Swing Jacket started. That, too, is sitting in a bag waiting for me to calm down and get through the pattern. I think it's the yarn-overs that slip all around on these patterns. Could the "knitting God" please come down and shine on me for a change!!!

Please someone ~ what is a knitting board? Frogging I get, and do a lot, but a knitting board? All these years and never heard what it is. Help! By the way, frogging is ripping out stitches. Someone said recently that it was called frogging because what you do is: ripit ripit ripit, etc. I love that explanation!

Knitting board not sure, but frogging-lol- you know rip it, rip it,rip it therefore "frogging" it!!
I think the knitting board is the plastic loom type thing that is a rage..they have round ones for hats etc.
