last weekend i saw a sweater pattern in a yarn catalog that uses seed stitch. i had forgotten how textural seed stitch is. much nicer than garter and just as flat. so, i started a beanie with it using green lion brand acrylic/wool blend yarn.

speaking of flat textural fabrics, here's something i crocheted and wore for new year's eve party 2004.
i used a fine wool/acrylic blend yarn for it. it's only about four inches wide. please don't ask me what the stitch is called. i can't read crochet patterns, much less stitches.
