At Knit Night at my LYS yesterday I worked some more on the Irish Hiking Scarf. Now that I have the repeats memorized, it is an easy project. I got another 4" done. I am making it in Lily Chin's "Park Avenue" color #24 (Teal/Blue-green Merino/Alpaca blend) on size 8 needles.

Also did a little work on a community project - making 7" squares in crocheted seed stitch, which about 8 people are doing - eventually they will all be sewn together into a blanket and be given to a charity.

Edit: Oops - the IHS pattern is here:

I'm in the ATL area and work

I'm in the ATL area and work near that part of town. I may try to drop in one night. I just started that same hiking scarf today. It would seem, as is often the case, coincidence is the rule, not the exception.

Crochet Seed Stitch is:

Crochet Seed Stitch is: chain to required length/width, turn, sc in 2nd chain from hook, chain-1, skip-1, sc in next ch,ch-1,skip-1,sc....etc. on the following rows you sc into the ch-1 space of the row below,ch-1 and skip next sc, and so on. It mimics the knitted seed stitch.

Okay - that would work.

Okay - that would work. *grin* I was being too literal in my attempts to mock seed stitch.
Thanks for a nice quick understandable answer.

Pieced blankets are so much

Pieced blankets are so much easier when a bunch of people work on them.
But I'm trying to figure out how to do a seed stitch in crochet. Aleternate between front and back loops?
