Whoa, your Argosy is so pretty!

It really is a neat pattern, I had to frog mine though because I got some stitches off, but I think I want to try it again. haha. :D

Also, I LOVE the branching out too, it looks so good in that color. :)

Really lovely! Tell me how did you wave in your ends? It seems the biggest issue I have with scarves...

I don't really remember, to be honest.  I'm terrible at weaving in ends, so I just tried to make it look okay.  On branching out, the garter stitch border makes it pretty easy to hide it, since you don't have to hide it in the lace work.  And on Argosy...I'm not sure, but I think I just double-stranded it for a few stitches, but doing it in one of the squares of stockinette, keeping it single stranded across the gaps.  Hope that helps! 

Thanks for all the great comments!  I really found the Argosy pattern to be easy to remember once I had a few repeats under my belt so I definitely recommend the pattern to anyone who's been eyeing it!  And I was totally intimidated by Branching Out when I started, but just go slow, use lifelines, and you'll definitely get the hang of it!  When I started it, I was sitting in front of my computer so I could watch the little videos on knittinghelp.com!!

Gorgeous! I think you picked the perfect yarn for Branching Out.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.
