Glenda - Aiden, by Ann Budd. I’m making this sweater for #mrwetcoastwools. I knit 15” of body in time for Christmas, put it on a 60” cable, and wrapped it up. When Mike tried it on, it was WAY too big. :( I blocked it before I frogged it to get a proper gauge. I have washed the yarn and will cast on again soon
Fidget socks by Amy Stringer - Patons Kroy FX in Clover Colours. I knit the leg of the second sock and realized that I had used the wrong needle size, so it was ½” too short, and too narrow. Frogged that and cast on again.
Strickplaner Cover - One for the Books, by Martina Behm. I’m using Malabrigo Sock in the Cote D’Azure colourway, and some random white sock yarn for contrast.

#FixFrogFinish2018 KAL: Runs from January until the end of June 2018. Dig out all your FOs and decide whether you are going to finish them, or frog them and re-purpose the yarn. This is also your chance to fix things that are already finished - either in terms of darning or pulling out and re-knitting something. This will be a chatter-type thread: in one post, list the FOs you need to deal with, and what you end up doing with them. Update the same post as you fix, frog, or finish each item Dont forget to tag your qualifying Ravelry projects with #fixfrogfinish2018 so we can see them all in one place
