"WIP" and "Frogging" Meaning?
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Deb,

"WIP" is not a knitting term but people use it when they refer to their work is in progress. "Work In Progress" is the meaning of it. Knitters and crocheters use them often.

"Frogging" refers to ripping your work apart. I heard that it came from the word "rip it". When you say "rip it" fast, it mimics the sounds frog makes. The word "frogging" then became widely used among knitters.
