I did laugh reading this quote in the book Back on Blossom Street the other day.
"Why do people who love to knit complain about knitting a row
with 1200 stitches & not about knitting 20 rows with 60 stitches?"
-Candace Eisner Strick, author of Sweaters from a New England Village,
Beyond Wool & Knit One, Stripe Too
I thought this quote quite valid after hooking for 40 minutes on one row. It means progress will seem really slow to me for sure. But I am not the only one that thinks that way obviously!
