The Tip Jar

If you're frogging your knit or crochet project and the stitches are resisting your efforts & sticking together too much, try giving them a good hard stretch. That will usually pop the stitches apart. If they're really velcroed together (especially with fuzzy haloed yarns), it's okay to pull them apart just like velcro. 

It won't hurt the yarn to do that here and there and it will help you undo with much less stress.
