The joys of mattress stitch

100_0856I’ve been working on the seam of a jumper that is knit flat, and thought I’d share how much I love mattress stitch.  In the picture you can see the front and back of the same seam, but from the front you wouldn’t really know it.  My favourite tutorial for mattress stich is this one here, from Knitty.  As well as liking the look, I think it’s quite fun to work, or is that just me?  I think there’s something so satisfying about something so neat.
