NEEEEVERMIND I figured out what I was doing wrong. I thought that after you pull your yarn to the front, knitting the next stitch was part of a YO, it's not, derrr haha. Thanks for the help!!

Haha, I made that mistake too! All the instructions I saw for a YO showed knitting a stitch after the yo. I had no idea that you just moved your yarn to the front, like you were going to purl. I was so happy when I figured that out.

I just finished my Branching Out - good luck with yours!

I finished my scarf! I'm really happy with it, even though it's much shorter than I intended. I was too stubborn to go out and buy a second ball of yarn. Unfortunately, it's going to be a gift, so I might just have to make another one for me.

Blocking does amazing things to this scarf...

Thanks! I used Koigu Merino. It's so soft, and I love the color! It worked really well for the scarf.

Well it's coming along, I did 4 or 5 repeats the other night, last night I worked on a shawl for my great aunt, tonight its back to the scarf. Here's the progress so far...

     

As you can see, mine puckered at the bottom, but I really like the way it looks so I've kinda been pulling at the two corners to encorage it.

I messed up a couple stitches but I frogged this like 6 times already and I'm just not doing it again. Serves me right for knitting a pattern while watching tv!

I screwed up too many times. I frogged it and started again. Then the yarn broke too many times so I just cut it and took the loss. I will have a hank and a half scarf instead of two it seems. For the record, this yarn is pretty but I don't reccommend it, it breaks very easily!

snowwhitesuicide, are you using a lifeline?  That thing has saved my ass many times!

BTW, the Agate and Lace Scarf is very easy lace knitting.  Just two rows, one of which is just purling.

I don't know what a life line is! haha. I am using a peg-it counter and I slide a bobby pin along the pattern to keep track. That's really my problem with lace knitting, I can stare at the second k2tog on a row, do it on my knitting, then look back up and completely forget what I just did. I'm going to be one of those old ladies wandering in the middle of traffic, I'm sure.

I've gotten the swing of it, after starting and ripping 3 times last night I made it through 5 whole repeats without a single mistake. Hold your applause. I'm right about where I frogged in the first place! I can't wait for it to be done, it's such a pretty scarf!
