Evil Seafoam Pattern

So I've been working on my scarf for ISE5. If everything that I knit were a part of this scarf, I think I'd be almost finished. I knit a swatch and blocked it. There were some minor problems, but I consulted with a friend who is a master knitter, and she gave me some tips. Unfortunately, that didn't help. I think this pattern was not meant to be with this particular yarn (even though it's recommended for the pattern). So I changed the seafoam portion to a twisted drop stitch for the rows with the yarn-overs, and that kept the lacy look, but it just looked cleaner. I'm going to keep the double-ribbed mock cable section.

Let's hope this works, because I'm getting tired of starting over!
