Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of me wearing it at the moment  Undecided
But I promise that it looks even better on!  It's really nice this time of year too, very cool.  The perfect summer scarf if you ask me.

The yarn was Lion Brand Incrdible, which is pretty expensive as far as LionBrand goes, but still trs cheap!  I believe it took two skeins, with a bit leftover.  I didn't follow a pattern, I just made a really simple sequence of dropped and double dropped stitches.  I also have a second one still on needles in Autumn-ish colors, but I need to buy another skein to finish it (I forgot it took two!).

Ribbon and dropped stitches - it sounds nice, but I can't see the photo.  This is the message I got when I clicked on the URLthat withoutfear posted:  While trying to retrieve the URL, The following error was encountered: Access Denied.  Why not try Craftster's "picture hosting"?  It's user-friendly.  I'd love to see your scarf.

Hmmm... My file seems too big to upload to Craftster. Embarrassed
I inserted the link that withoutfear posted.. the reason it may have not worked could have been a temporary server thing.  If not, I tried to insert a picture hosted by photobucket.

Let me know if it's still not working??   Undecided

and withoutfear:  thanks!  the colors are really bright, but i really like them.

Gorgeous Cheesy

Your stitches are so even, and I love the colour combination.

That was worth waiting for - gorgeous how the "Incredible" knits up.  Make sure you post the one in the Autumn-ish colours when it's done.

Thanks everyone!   Grin
And margarita miss, I will definitely post the other version as soon as it's complete.

I'm away from home for the moment (going home tomorrow -- YAY!)  But hopefully it will be done within the next week, if not sooner.  Another great thing about this scarf was how "Incredible"-y fast it knit up  Wink hehe...
One more note that I forgot to add is that this scarf does tend to curl a lot.  Even when I knit some up in garter stitch it curled quite a bit, and it looks much prettier in stockinette.  But when I wear it, I don't mind how it looks.  Actually, it kind-of adds to the flavor of it, I think.
