The pretty scarf for my friend and I had a good long chat on the weekend. I suspected that the number of stitches I had cast on wasn't enough, and after a bit of pinning out, it agreed. So, all the knitting I did, was pulled back. Oh the humanity.
But only to the i-cord cast on stage. Once there, I picked up the stitches from the bound off cord, and I cast on another hundred stitches. Progress has been pretty good for as little knitting time as I had. It's hard not to move forward with vigor when I am knitting lace stitches. I'm almost back to where I was when I had to pull back.
I really love the little star stitch. It makes such an impressive show for such a simple process.
