Also, you might want to note why it’s called “frogging”…
What does a frog sound like?
I’ve also heard the reject pile (pieces that aren’t turning out well and are set aside to be ripped out) called ‘the frog pond’.
I-cord - a very easy-to-knit cord, made by casting on to a double-pointed needle, then knitting without turning. At the end of each row, you just scoot the piece across the needle and go on with the next row. The back side of the work pulls tight, like a zipper, as you work, and you end up with a yarn tube.
Casting on - to place the initial stitches on one of your knitting needles. There are an amazing multitude of methods of casting on. I can’t even go into them in this post.
Binding off - to finish up the main knitting of a piece (or part of a piece) so that it doesn’t unravel when it’s slipped off the needles. Basically, it consists of slipping each stitch over the stitch in front of it, so it catches on that stitch. At the end, the yarn end is pulled through the last stitch and woven into the seam.
Straight needles - the classic knitting needle. Long, pointed on one end and knobbed at the other. Used for knitting flat.
Circular needles - two knitting needles without knobs on the ends, connected by a cord of varying length. Used for knitting in the round as well as for knitting flat.
Double-pointed needles - a set of knitting needles (either 4 or 5 of them) with points on both ends that are used for knitting in the round on projects that are too small for circular needles to be practical.
Knitting flat or straight knitting - the classic back-and-forth technique of knitting on straight needles. To create stockinette stitch, one knits one row and purls the next.
Knitting in the round - knitting with circular or double-pointed needles. Rather than turning the work as you would for straight knitting, you just keep going around and around and around. To create stockinette stitch in round knitting, you just keep knitting row after row of knit stitches.
Knit (stitch) - Putting the needle through the existing stitch from front to back, then wrapping the yarn (held behind the work) around, pulling it through, and dropping the old stitch off the needle.
Purl (stitch) - putting the needle through the existing stitch from back to front, then wrapping the yarn (held in front of the work) around, pulling it through and dropping the old stitch off the needle.
Stockinette stitch - creates a smooth work, with even rows of stitches. In flat knitting, is created by alternating rows of knit and purl. In round knitting, is created by consistently using knit stitches.
Garter stitch - creates a ridged, stretchy work. In flat knitting, is created by knitting every row. In round knitting, is created by alternating rows of knit and purl.
