What does knit on the bias mean?
I've read this in several places, and cannot figure out what knitting on the bias actually entails. Can anyone enlighten me?
On the needles: Falling Leaves Socks, Punkin Hats, Artful Afgan and another waterlily for a friend of mine (on hold until I feel like working with that yarn again)

In the queue:
Jack Skellington baby afghan
Finished: Warm Up America Square, Basketweave Baby Blanket (now to ship it), Massachusetts Dishcloth for the Yarn Harlot, Homeless Hat
, water bottle cozy

The way you knit it makes it look like it is knitted an angle (if that makes any sense). I made a scarf that I saw on knitty gritty, here's a pic:

It involves knitting diagonally, like the pp mentioned. You cast on a new stitch at the beginning of rows and bind of a stitch at the end of the rows (or vice versa).
