I don't have any other advice than what these other fine knitters have given. But here's a hug
I'm sure it will all work out. Hang in there.

Hey, hope you manage to work it out.

If it helps here is a link I used to insert a lifeline into a row that has already been knitted, I am hopeless at getting stitches back on the needle. If you go down the page it explains how to put a needle into the destination row before unraveling, you could try that. When I did it I used a needle and thread instead of a knitting needle because I thought it'd be easier, worked just as well.

http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/FEATwin03TT.html

If you stick a lifeline or your knitting needle in a row or two below the bind off then just unravel and pick the stitches back up off the lifeline you should be able to fix it.

There might be another way, I'm not very experienced but I would probably do what others have suggested and just unravel the bind off, pick up from the lifeline and keep knitting until its right.

Hope that helps xxx

Are you perhaps worried you won't know where you are on the stitch pattern sequences?
Perhaps you could go back to a row with a cable crossing in it. That should be easier to identify.
Put your lifeline into the row before the crossed row, (it will mean undoing the crossed sts row) then you can start with re-doing the cable cross which is Row 3 in the cable and also Row 3 for the Plume stitch.
Good Luck.

Thanks everyone i'm sorry i didn't respond earlier but i don't have computer access on the weekends! So the update is this: the very second that miss_molly reasured me that i screwed up my project and told me that i could do it I just DID IT! I had worked way to hard on it to just let it go so i carefully pulled out the bind off and quickly figured out that i had worked the pattern and then the very next row I had bound it off!!!!!! So it was EASY to figure out where i was in the pattern (and yes i was very worried about the cable looking bad). I DIDN"T EVEN TwiST ONE STITCH!! I've never picked up stitches before and not screwed it up a little bit but this time i didn't mess it up at all! I don't know if the plume pattern just hid it well and i got lucky on the cable or what but it looks great!! Anyway over the weekend i fixed that mistake and i finished the entire sweater. I really didn't think i would be able to do it and the pattern really put me thru the ringer but i did it and it's beautiful! I think i may have to learn how to post pics so i can show everyone because i wouldn't have been able to do it without everyone here helping me. So thank you all for your help.

Sitting here reading the entire thread, I was getting worried that you had frogged it, so I'm SO glad that you were able to finish the sweater, and that you are happy with it!

Hope you'll be able to post a pic soon~
