Seed Stitch Stripes

While Gavin surfed at the point in Cobourg, I cast on and knit about two-thirds of my second linen washcloth - one more from the series of eight Linen washcloths by Theresa Gaffey published in the book Knitter's Stash. This Seed Stitch Stripes pattern is very simple but very effective. I think I'm going to like it better than the Dragon Scales washcloth I've just done; mostly because the pattern knits up for a flatter and squarer finished product.

Wondering about the little scrap metal mouse? When I saw him at the Urban Nature Store, I just couldn't resist. He had no price sticker so the store owner asked if $2 seemed reasonable. Reasonable? No. An absolute steal!
