Frogging is becoming less and less painful. I mean, I don't know as I'll ever look at something I just spent time working at and think, "Oh frabjous day! I get to pull this out now!" but I'm not as freaked out by it as I used to be. I've had to get over that while learning to do this Branching Out.. Putting in a lifeline at the start of every repeat is a good thing.
I think if I left a mistake in, I'd never be able to appreciate the 26 mistake free repeats, I'd always be drawn to that one missed stitch. And I don't want to give my mom anything but my best. So here I go, repeat #9, take 3.
