grusinskaya-

I had problems with remembering to do my yarnovers at first. It's a funny habit to get into.  But don't get discouraged, because once you get going it's a much more repetitive than it seems it would be.

I finished this scarf a few days ago! Once I got the hang of the pattern, it knit up really fast, I love this pattern!



I have never had luck with lace before, so I did this in really cheap acrylic, in a nice burnt orange color (although it looks more like bright!orange in this photo). I really like how it turned out Smiley

you won't do anything. because you are decreasing on the row before, you are going to have less stitches on your needle. once you do the pattern, you will see that by the time you get to the black boxes, you will already be at your 3 garter stitches that form the border. make sense?

Hi everyone!
I got back from France yesterday and am almost finished my scarf, I didn't have much time to knit while I was away but came back with half a suitcase full of yarn because my friend's mum gave me all her old yarn while I was there, hee hee Smiley I am knitting it in a beige colour but wish it was in pink, oh well I will just have to knit more!
Lulu Clyde, the yarn sale was in Listowel, ON in Canada at the Spinrite factory. Not sure if anyone lives near there but there is another tent sale this month I think and they have AWESOME deals (they give you a garbage bag as a shopping bag, I came back with it full, my grandma had two!) If you go though, be prepared to line up outside for an hour! (and also to get really good use of your elbows, knitters are vicious!)

Huh is anyone having problems between rows 16 & 2. my row 16 ends perfectly, i purl row 1 and when i get to the end of row 2, i only have 1 knit stitch left (vs. 2) before the border. does this make sense? i don't know what i am doing wrong. i have just started knitting in the front and back of that stitch to make 2 so that the rest of the pattern works out.

anyone? anyone? just me?

 Huh Sad  The same thing is happening to me.  I've frogged this twice already and I'm going for a third.  I know I'm doing something wrong. Sad

Make sure you're doing all of your yarnovers.  Mabye stop in the middle of your row and double and triple check yourself.  I had that problem until I got in the flow of the pattern.

So after starting this scarf 3 different times and ripping it out twice, I think I've finally gotten it!!! I couldn't sleep last night, so I decided to give it another try. Something must have clicked, because I've finished 5 repeats so far, and I haven't had any problems (knock on wood). I can't wait to finish this scarf--it's going to be so nice for fall!
