I decided to make one of those cute knitted mug cozies I have seen on pinterest and on a few Etsy shops.

Seed stich is a knit and purl pattern. You alternate between a knit and a purl stitch on every row. If you started with a knit stitch the previous row, you will start with a purl stitch on the following. That is what gives the stitches that "bumpy" texture. Ok...enough with the technicalities, if you would like a good tutorial go to the "for dummies" website here.

Overall it was a fun project and one that could be done while watching TV with the hubs...all in all I think it took about 3 hours....I love instant gratification! (My last cable knit scarf took 1.5 years to make!...seriously...)
