What an accomplishment!  You should be so proud...from carding the wool to knitting the scarf...just wonderful...

I noticed a purple yarn in your knitting...is it a lifeline?  I just started using them on all of my lace knitting...well, almost...I got tired of frogging more than I was knitting! Cheesy

Thank you all!

Always, that was the original provisional cast on method i used, known as the Open cast on method. It's the one I frogged after picking up stitches for 6 or more hours. It was like untying knots.  But that was that one video I used on you tubes fault. Grin  I've used a lifeline before in lace knitting.  Save some time, but in the end I got only part way through and said forget it. Lol. It was a very complicated lace pattern, where no row was remotely the same..... Or at least 57 rows in it wasn't. Lol

I forgot that you had to do the provisional cast on...what a pain...I have learned from knitting lace that if you can't find the mistake to frog it, neither can anyone else...ha...I think you did a phenomenal job...it turned out so pretty...and I am sure it will be beautiful to wear as well...
