“What is frogging?” by Linda Martin Andersen

Check the definitions listed here:



I visited a knitter’s blog recently and learned another meaning of the word frogging.  Read the article here.


After reading the knitting article, I thought about my writing and created a riddle.


Riddle:  What might a writing work-in-progress (WIP) and a knitting project have in common?

Answer:  Frogging…Rip-it.  Rip-it!


Writing Prompts:

  1. What comes to mind when you hear the word “frogging?”
  2. What do you think the frogs pictured above might say about “frogging?”
  3. What do you think the frogs above might say to each other?
  4. What name would you give the frogs above and why?
  5. What would knitters say about “frogging?”
  6. What would outdoorsmen say about “frogging?”
  7. How is frogging used on coats and other clothing?
  8. Write a riddle about frogging.

    Dear Linda,
    Thanks for writing a post about frogs. I used to play with frogs when I was little. It is interesting that there are so many uses of the word frog.

    Celebrate you.

    Love your riddle! I have been known to frog a page or two……. 🙂

    • You got it! Rip it! Rip it! But it’s still worth it, isn’t it? Thanks for taking time to read the knitting post to see the connection. Do you knit? Not I. I do enjoy seeing the lovely knitting others can turn out though. I admire their patience.

    I love your writing prompts and might come back to them :-). Thanks for the explanation about frogging even though at first it had a rather naughty impression on me 🙂 When you are not a native speaker you often get a little different impressions from words 🙂

    • Hi Bee,
      I know what you mean about words having different meanings and uses, depending on where you are from. I’m glad you enjoyed the writing prompts and may come back to them again later. I hope you don’t rip it while writing today!

  7. This is cute! Love the rip-it rip-it! 😀

  8. I love your riddle, Linda! So much fun happenin’ at your playground! 👍
