Holding my breath

All that moss stitch? Yeah. But why is it worse (or better) to knit than 1x1 rib anyway? And whilst you're pondering that, I'll try and whizz the statistics as determined by my rather inaccurate kitchen scales by you all quick-like, in the hopes that they'll be better that way. Knit so far: back and one sleeve Weight so far: 330 g Weight of yarn remaining: 330g And then, there is the swatch, which is good for another 10 g. Yes, I weighed it.

Don't know why it's true about moss stitch being more unbearable to do than rib, but it really is ... does it have anything to do with the fact that it makes the knitting wider, and shorter?

Sounds like you've got TOTALLY enough yarn - the front is bound to be smaller than the back, right? So with the extra from that, and that not-to-be-forgotten extra 10g from the swatch you'll have plenty for any edging. No problem!

(And thank you Mary-Lou - I'm glad someone sees where I'm coming from...)

Hmm, I'd much rather knit moss than ribbing, because ... who knows? De gustibus non est disputandum, as the latinists would say.

Low neck, Alison, and maybe less froufy edging? You can do it!
