Seed Stich Help!
Argh! I was about halfway in my sister's seed stich scarf when disaster struck! I noticed once stich looked odd so I counted and realized I had added an extra loop somewhere, so I ripped out few rows and put my needle back on. I must be doing something wrong b/c it doesn't seem like I have pearl / knit alternatively anymore. It seems like I mostly have pearls along with something from another planet! I've ripped out so much trying to correct this and I can't! I don't know if I looking at it wrong or threading it wrong or what. If anyone can hep it would much appreciated. Thanks!

assuming you are doing a 1-row, 1x1 seed stitch, the way you can tell you are doing it correctly is when you see a purl stitch on the needle, you knit it, and if you see a knit stitch, you purl it. an easy way to keep this in check when knitting a scarf is to start with an odd number of stitches and that way you will always begin each row with K1 and that will work out in seed stitch perfectly.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
