Pulled out my nice wooden needles, size 7, and started knitting the scarf. About a fourth of the way through I realized I had an extra stitch, and there are only 5 cast on. The directions say to work in every other space of the top edge of the yarn.
I thought, don't ask me why, I could just remove the last stitch instead of working a decrease. When I did the whole thing started to unravel. I rolled it back up and put it away for the night. The next night I started it again, made it about half way through and things were going good. I stopped, went to the kitchen for something, came back, picked up my needles and every stitch slid off. So, I rolled it back up and put it away.
Last night I started it AGAIN but I changed to a size 10 plastic needle and found a cover for the tip. I love the smoothness of my wooden needles but I had to put them up. Things seem to be working now so I hope that I can get this finished without anymore problems.
