ooooo i can't wait to see fo's lol

I'm trying to decide whether to frog of finish this scarf I'm making on mcn. The yarn is just amazing but since i knit the scarf flat with a seed stitch border it keeps rolling in on itself and i just don't think it's doing it justice

Will it stop rolling in on itself if i block it?

My exp with seed is it will always have a slight roll. Blocking it might help, why don't you try to block a bit of the end before you decide?

I see so only two of us are in CA then. So you are Fiona correct? AK is one of the places DH and I would like to try and live. From what we hear it's a great place to raise a family. There is a hospital in Anchorage that hires a mammo tech yearly, but I have never made it to the second interview unfortunately. How do you like it?

We have LOTS of hospitals in Anchorage. It's a good place to be in the healthcare industry because most of the state uses the medical facilities in ANC so we have more than most places of similar size.

I love it up here, I was born north of the Arctic Circle and after my husband retired we could have made any place home but we both wanted to be here.

Good idea! Cause if i decide to frog I'm going to have to reskein the yarn and wash it to get the kinks out anyway. Do i need to be extra careful with mcn? It's got a lil fuzz to it and i don't want to felt it by accident
