I'm in! I made a few modifications to the original pattern to convert it to a scarf, and I'm really happy with it! I even discovered the benefits of blocking last night. I'd never blocked before, and I can't believe how well it worked. I'll post pictures as soon as I find a camera to borrow. Mine is incredibly craptastic.
I still keep ending rows with too many stitches!! And I'm being so careful I really don't want to frog again...do you think it'll be ok to do some damage control and knit a few together to get back on track? I've just finished row 13 and I've got 23 stitches
I think just doing random decreasing would throw off the pattern, I really don't know how this is happening, because I never had any of those problems on my shawl, are you doing the increases and decreases correctly?

CONGRATULATIONS TO AMY AND SHELDON ON THE BIRTH OF THEIR DAUGHTER!
How in the world do you cast on right in the middle of knitting?
This is right where I am--I know I have to CO 3 sts at the end of row 9, but I don't know how (I'm knitting a sample of the candle flame shawl with some scrap yarn in my stash to see if I can do it). I tried to do this once before with another knittng project and I couldn't figure it out. Help!
