It’s been a week since fall started but here in Alaska, it seems like we are closely approaching the end of it. Check out the mountains around us and they are all screaming winter! That brings me to point out another exciting thing…. hat season!
Knitting wise, I am having a blast. I am currently doing a market prep for the end of October. So for you makers out there, you know what this means. I have been knitting away hats in different sizes for months now, and I am loving it.
New discovery: Lion Brand Yarn’s Wool Ease Thick and Quick has released newer colors. I am not entirely sure when these colors came out. However, among what I have used so far, these are my favorites: Coney Island which has gorgeous shades of fall colors and Astropolis which has pinks and purples. These color ways definitely made my all-time fave list like the Hudson Bay. Look how those colors play out!
How about you? Do you have a market or bazaar you are prepping for? Share with us what you’re working on.

When I was starting to learn how to knit, I looked for pretty stitches with my limited capability of just knit and purl stitches. The seed stitch immediately caught my attention. Using just knit and purl stitches, it creates a beautiful texture regardless of the yarn weight being used.
These headbands are quick to work on. They are perfect! Think fall colors and simple pleasures!
Here is a free pattern of the Seed Stitch Headbands that I made in two sizes.
This pattern can be used for 2 sizes: baby-toddler size and regular adult size which is the measurements in parenthesis.
I hope you enjoy this pattern as you enjoy the change in seasons! Happy fall everyone!
