Exploring linen stitch. I like it better when I do a row "wrong" and end up with a bit more variety. It makes an interesting texture and makes for a very flat and dense fabric. It's also slow going and takes some attention (which is not necessarily a bad thing). This will be for a headband. I also think it would be nice in cotton for dish clothes.
One interesting comparison I'd make to seed stitch is that seed stitch has more drape. I probably will keep to seed stitch for the blanket I'm knitting.
I've known for awhile that I had a few areas where the stitching was "wrong" on the beginning of this blanket, but I wasn't too worried about it. As I've been knitting I keep considering these areas and liking how it looks. What if there were little bits here and there of stockinette, of ribbing?
Another what if I was considering was to spin some of the yarn for this rather than work with the goal of using up the stash. I've decided that seed stitch isn't the best choice for my thick and thin hand spun. Maybe if I make a more consistent thickness? Maybe...
