I know everyone has seen them before but this one is Mine! This is my second ever knit project. It was knit in 100% silk yarn. It's going to be auctioned off to raise money for our children of employee scholarship fund.

that is so pretty!  i just attended my first knitting 101 class and your project gives me so much hope!  sometimes if new projects are too difficult and i don't see any improvement relatively quickly, i get discouraged and give up.  but the fact that this was only your 2nd project, my goodness, that's fantastic!  and it is so classy!
 oh, and of course that you made it for a fundraiser makes me love it even more!

Very nice!

I'm currently knitting a Branching Out, and I keep thinking about making some to sell at work or to auction in order to raise funds for various charities. Certainly is a very good thing to do with one's projects!

WOW! That's beatiful! I love how lacey it looks in white!

Wow, I'm impressed. My second knitted project wasn't nearly as nice as yours. Grin

I have to second what Mikania said. You did a really great job, and for a good cause too. Congratulations.

Thank you everyone for the lovely compliments  Smiley  It was fairly hard to part with however, I think my boss is going to try and win it.

Don't be intimidated by this chart It is just a repeat of ten rows and only the odd numbered rows have fiddley stitches. The even rows are just knit 3 purl to the last three and then knit the last 3 again. I just read through the pattern first and the stitches I didn't know I watched the videos for on knittinghelp.com

HOWEVER, Pay VERY close attention to what you are doing in row SEVEN!! Whenever I messed up this is where it would be. You don't find out until row nine and you have to rip down to row six to fix it. It was always just missing a yo.

I like your scarf...I'm doing Branching Out as well, in white as well, but mine doesn't look this good. Probably because I'm using cotton yarn. It's for my mother, though, and she thinks it's the bee's knees, though it sometimes looks rather like a doily.
