I can't beleive how many times I had to frog this dratted thing (well, until I realised that one of the charts was 2 sts narrower than the others, and that was why I kept getting 7 instead of 6) - I promised it to my colleague for his 30th birthday (Jan 25th) and I finished it last night (March 29th!!)

Anyway - it's a tube scarf made from Olympus Merino 100 in chocolate brown, with the pattern in taupe, charts from here - http://www.stitchnbitch.org/si_chart.gif
(thogh new knitty has some socks with space invaders...)

Having just knitted a Space Invaders scarf myself, I feel your pain.  I made the mistake of trying to knit my fair-isle portion while watching tv, which resulted in much frogging for me.  Yours looks lovely though! The colours suit the old-school video game-ness of the pattern really well, and the stripe above the invaders is a nice divider.

Ooh, would love to see yours - did you post it here?

ETA - oh, so you did, and very cool it is too. I like the bright colours. I went with brown because Dan mostly wears browns and greens.
