I'm knitting the Strangling Vine Lace Scarf. After starting it last night with my silk and having to restart it before getting to the actual lace pattern, I somehow had 2 extra stitches at the end of the first repeat of the 4 row lace pattern. I decided to try it out with some worsted acrylic and bigger needles. I got through the first 2 repeats with no problem. My stitch count was dead on. Now I'm trying it with the lace again, and I've got an extra 2 stitches at the end of the first repeat again. Does this silk just really not want to be knit with this pattern? What could be happening?

How about getting a whole pile of stitchmarkers (or ringbinder hole reinforcers) or something and after each repeat of the pattern in a row put in a marker. That should show up any probs if one group has more st than the next etc!
You might have 10 or more markers in a row but it would only be until that silk realised it was beaten.
