I've made it to 14 inches on my askew, but I'm knitting another couple of inches, because it feels a bit too short. I also am wondering if blocking it will make it fit better around the bust. How's everyone else's coming along?

The body of my askew is nearly done. I've spent a lot of time doing non-knitterly things, but I still hope to have this done before I move next weekend.

i'm using blue sky cotton worsted weight for my askew and have cast on twice now.  've cast on the back panel and have almost 2 inches completed.  i'm knitting it in panels as the pattern suggests (although i think Singlemom has something w/ knitting the entire thing at once)

although i'm a medium and i'm knitting it a medium, the back panel doesn't seem to be wide enough. and by not wide enough i mean it's 3 to 4 inches not wide enough!!  i've temporarily put this on hold until i get the gumption to frog it Sad

Keep in mind that the first three sizes have negative ease, meaning they're supposed to stretch.  Also remember that they are supposed to be blocked out to size, so I don't know what that bodes for knitting it in cotton. (Of course I'm knitting it in acrylic and ignoring that in hopes that it will all work out...)
