Skunk not stroke.

I finished up the back of the Minimalist Cardigan last night. It looks... odd... sideways... strange. The moss stitch gave it a really bad bias which leads to difficult measuring and I'm going to guess a big effing pain to block. Yay. I'm looking forward to that.

I cast on for the front tonight. I'm going to do both front panels at the same time to try to speed up the process. Moss stitch gets boring.

I still haven't done ANYTHING with the Feather & Fan scarf. I really, really dislike the yarn. It bunches up and tangles. It's gorgeous, but annoying as hell.

I just added a crapload of cotton yarn to my stash on Ravelry. Most of it needs photos taken which I'll try to get tomorrow.

Blah, blah, blah. I sort of stopped writing in the middle of all of this and lost my train of thought.

I know what you mean about the moss stitch. I'm a couple of inches shy of armhole shaping on the back and I feel like it will never be done. Good luck with the fronts!

I'm doing the same pattern and it's biasing horribly too. How did it turn out after blocking? I just finished the back and I'm tempted to frog it because of the bias.

I haven't blocked mine yet. I'll probably be doing the fronts & back over the weekend.
