baby steps

I've noticed a trend in the subject matter of the quotes I've been appending to the end of blog posts. Many of them have to do with progress...I wish I had more to show you more often, but apparently progress takes some cases lots of time! I believe my second most frequent topic is patience :)

I modified these Toasty Twist socks by knitting my new favorite heel...the linen stitch heel. I heart it!

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a fantastic week!

Progress, of the best kind, is comparatively slow.
Great results cannot be achieved at once;
and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk,
step by step.

Beautyful! I love these Colors♥

I like the linen stich, too.
Actually, theres a "Hipe" in the German Ravelry Group "Restend".

A lot of us german Rav''-Knitters are knitting the Scrappy Lengthwise Scarf or the Minimania Scarf. Both in the linen stich and with leftover Yarn. Funny and produces a really lovely Scarf :-)

I love the look of that heel flap! DH have me that book for Christmas and I have yet to truly get lost in it. Looks like I better get on that soon :-)

Ooh, linen stitch should be perfect for heels - nice and sturdy!
As well as pretty :0)

That heel is so pretty! I heart it too! And the colors. . . so very pretty. Knitting is the best teacher of patience.

So lovely. And Tina should consider showing your socks to show off colors---these (like so many of your works) are just lovely. I truly just smiled when I saw them. Thank you!
