Scarf Woes

Ok, remember that scarf?  Guess what?  It’s been frogged AGAIN.  I am so angry at Lion for writing a bad pattern, or maybe for having yarn that refuses to block, and myself for not researching this sooner.  I kept having problems with the garter stitch border folding up over the reverse stockinette part that’s there to highlight the cable.  I’m pretty proud of myself for doing the cable, I found Wendy’s instructions for cabling without a cable needle, and it’s so easy, but I’m so mad at that darn scarf.  I had thought that the folding was due to using the wrong needle, see previous post about my stupidity.  So, I kept knitting along, with the correct needle and thinking, this folding will go away when I get it long enough, right?  It didn’t.  So, I finally had the brilliant thought to go and check it out on Ravelry to see if anyone else had had this problem and if it could be cured by blocking.  According to all the comments on that pattern, 2 or 3 of them were hibernating, and all the rest said the same thing.   Their scarf did the same thing and no amount of blocking worked.  I’m so mad.  I had already gotten to the part where I started in the second ball.  So, I frogged it and started a great pattern from someone else on Ravelry called the Go To Scarf.  It’s working great.  Now.  Phil had better LOVE this dang thing.
