Froggy Went Courting

Froggy went a’courtin’ and he did ride uh-huh uh-huh

He wanted Miss Mousie by his side uh-huh uh-huh uh-huh

You see where this is headed, don't you? Nothing big. Just a ripping good time (not) as I decide that the black and blue scarf wasn't coming along as nicely as I wanted. The edges looked ragged and the first row uneven. No matter how much lipstick gets put on a pig, it's still a pig. No offense to pigs, of course.

With time running a mite on the short side, I'm going to start over, double-stranding the RYC Cashsoft 4-ply to do Norah Gaughan's Almost Garter scarf with alternating black and navy blue rows.

Hmmm. That'll be a lucky recipient! I always like to see stripes in a scarf - they make the scarf look more comfy for some odd reason.

I'm so sorry you had to frog, but I think the second scarf will practically knit itself! Especially since you're using such a lovely yarn. :)

Sorry you had to frog, but I had to mention dad was a musician and when we were little he used to play guitar and sing us that song. We always loved it. Thanks for the memories.

I love that, "no matter how much lipstick you put on a pig, it's still a pig"!
