I've recently started knitting a fun top, using Lion Brand Incredible yarn. It is going so quickly and is really fun. Anyone want to join in a knit-along?

Here's a close-up of the ribbon yarn detail. Nice!

I'm using a different yarn from what they recommend, and am able to reach gauge. I'm carrying along some old sparkly gold "Yarn Ball" yarn with the Lion Brand Incredible, and here are my results so far:

I just started a blog, in case anyone wants to read about it. If you join up, I'll post your photos in the blog as well.

you know... I have sooooooo much ribbon yarn (cause sometimes, you just have to buy stuff cause it's pretty), but have had no idea what to do with it, but yours looks lovely. If I didn't have so much on my plate already, I'd join in.

I suppose I could cast on and just do a couple of rows a day, you can't have too many things OTN I suppose :shifty:

Last night, I knit some more on Willa, and it's going FAST. I've already done 11 inches on the back. I really like this pattern. :heart:

I did a top with the incredible yarn too! I actually took a sleeveless shell top, and did some fooling around with it, put it on circs, then when I got to where the armholes were to be, split the stitches and left half on the circ and half on straights, knitted the rest of the way up, bound off, then did the back the same way. I then sewed up the shoulder seam equally on both sides and left a boat style neck. It came out fun and funky and perfect for summer fun in Las Vegas this summer. I have gotten a lot of compliments and no one can believe it is a ribbon yarn. Yours looks great!
