The site is redirecting just fine.

You said:
 >>>I have recently moved my wiki from
 >>>http://www.knitting-and.com/wiki to http://www.knitting-and.com/w and 
 >>>the entries to still show at http://www.knitting-and.com/wiki

They are and all short URL work fine. I am guessing from your original 
statement, you changed directories.

http://www.knitting-and.com/wiki/Main_Page and any short URL I browse 

I believe you're thinking wiki/index.php?.... instead of 

Since you changed your directory from /wiki to /w, the long URLs are 

http://www.knitting-and.com/w/index.php?title=Main_Page and it works 
just fine. /wiki is a rewritten fake directory now, it doesn't really 

If you call /wiki/index.php?.... whatever, anything after the ?  is 
truncated and index.php shows up as a 404, uncreated article. This 
behavior is correct. Rewrite is parsing and preforming correctly as far 
as I can tell. Even &action=edit shows me the source of a page.
