You have to do the opposite stitch of the one that's now facing you. Forget the fact that when you created a stitch it was a knit on the other side. It is now, as it faces you, a purl and that's what you go by. So for seed st you knit the purls and purl the knits as they face you.

Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
