One of the things I like best about knitting is that you can see your progress. Even when it is a large project with hundreds of stitches per row, while it is sometimes hard to see the knitted inches grow, you can still see the yarn disappear from the ball or cone. As stitch patterns reveal themselves, as they grow, it is a thing of beauty. Even the discovery of what results from the cryptic pattern instructions is progress. And to get to the end of something, even if it only one front side, is a feeling of real achievement.
