“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!
