Lovin' Seed Stitch

Let's see, I just sent a week working on a scarf using circular needles so all I did was knit, and now I'm excited about knitting a little baby sweater in seed stitch. I don't seem to be interested in challenges of any kind, BUT I do love the way seed stitch looks even though it's easy. The sweater pattern is from The Debbie Bliss Baby Knits book that I'm using for the little bear. It has an eyelet row that you embroider around making little flowers. I think it's going to be darling.

I'm a little worried about my little Debbie Bliss teddie. I was looking at Sweetpea's gallery and she looks like she is an accomplished knitter, but she wasn't very happy with the pattern. There are so many pieces that it's hard to put them together smoothly. I guess I'd better work on it a little tonight instead of doing seed stitch.

You know what I would do, because I am a lazy (and not so good) knitter? On the day the baby is born, go to Build-a-Bear. Less of a headache and not as many moving parts.

I love knitting seed stitch, it sure makes your knit look nice.
Oh, you have a new scarf in your previous post. It must have been fun to knit for your daughter! ;)
