Small Update

The seed stitch, also known as the moss stitch, is lovely. Don't get me wrong.  However, the next time I get the idea to make a rather large item that is almost entirely done in the seed stitch please poke me with a knitting needle.

Still seeding. Almost one skein in.  Will hopefully add second skein tonight or tomorrow. But must first learn how to do so.


  1. Amy (found you from the Tiny Owl Knits rav group) -- what fiber are you knitting with? If it's wool or an animal fiber, I find the spit splice to be fastest and least noticeable.

  2. I'm using Debbie Bliss Baby's a merino, microfibre and cashmere blend.
    Is the split splice where you kind of graft them together with spit?

  3. Yep! Also called a felted join, for people who are too ladylike to say "spit." Wet about 3-4 inches of each end you'll be joining, overlap them together, and then roll them vigorously in your hands like you're making Play-Doh spaghetti. Voila! You have joined your skein, and you have many hours of happy seeding ahead of you.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment! ~Amy
