Sue, thank you so much for your time! I don't know if I explained myself well in the previous post or not. But after viewing the provisional cast-on a few times, I now have what I think is a moebius OTN (with scrap yarn, lol). I'll do a few rows of the pattern with this and if it looks good, I'll venture on to the cashmere. Right now, my stitch marker magically appeared between my needles.
