Drop Stitch Scarf

I got some ribbon yarn on sale at Michael's. Mostly I wanted it for novelty's sake. I wonder what it's like knitting with different types of things. (So far my favorite is seeing someone's pictures of knitting ramen noodles with chopsticks.)

Here I used the follow up book by Debbie Stoller "Stitch 'N Bitch Nation". The pattern for the scarf is called "Yo, Drop it!". Cute title? Eh, my little knitters in the know? [I know that explaining a joke can kill it... but YO is a pattern abbreviation for 'yarn-over' - which adds a stitch. Drop it refers to dropping the stitch that you added in the previous row.]
