Is anyone thinking of trying this technique, this year?

Here are a few eggs, from last year's egg party.

They were done by total beginners!

So, you enter and leave each stitch as called for, and don't worry about the ones "next door?"

Hmm...I don't think I'm explaining this correctly. 

When you graft two sets of live stitches together, the two sides get off-set by half a stitch. This is no big deal in stockinette or reverse stockinette. 

However, in this project, everything is "off" by half a stitch, so the whole pattern is jogging over in an unattractive fashion.

Mnemosyne_LA -- can you possibly sumaeize what Ms. Pearl-McPhee says?  I don't have that book.

My problem isn't about grafting purls, it is about getting the whole thing to line up correctly.  As it is, everything is catty-whompus.

So I'm knitting this sweet scarf, and to keep it symmetrical, I'm knitting it in two pieces.

The thing is that, for some reason, my brain isn't working tonight and I'm forgetting how to deal with grafting live stitches (kitchener) when there is a mixture of knit and purl stitches.

I can't figure out how to deal with the half-stitch offset that you get when you graft.

I know there's a way.  I've grafted plenty of projects, but I can't visualize this tonight. Mary Thomas and Montse Stanley aren't helping, me.  And all the online explanations that I've looked at show plain stockinette, not a mixture.

Will someone take pity on me, and explain this to me in a way that my poor addled brain can comprehend?
