I don't know what could be happening. Uh, Ingrid?

Let's see what happens now I have some quiet...

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 am doing the Candle Flame Shawl, and I had some problems at the start of it not having enough stiches. But I learned that a yarn over isn't counted as a separate stich (sp?)

Did that make any sense?

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?

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!

That's the funniest thing I've ever heard--I'm going to steal that line!!!!

Oh--I see Amy has a video for the backwards loop cast on to do the method of casting on stitches at the end of row 9 here. Yay Amy!!!!!
