I ripped. I frogged. I actually did it. I decided that the previous weeks worth of knitting that was hugenormous; was my own fault and I needed to put my big girl pants on and frog it. Like ripping off a Band-Aid I just had to close my eyes and pull out the needles. At least with a Band-Aid you can soak it with alcohol and it will not sting so much when removed. Pulling the needles out stung.
