Float Away Scarf

I so enjoy when the time comes that I can show that I actually do crochet. Quite a lot, really. I'm just ADD and rarely finish projects unless they're for publication. I enjoyed crocheting this one immensely; I made it back in December. It was the first time I picked up a yarn and it told me exactly what it wanted to be. Very little input was needed from my own brain.
I designed this as my staff project for the spring 2007 Interweave Crochet. I fell in love with the ribbed ripples, having no idea they'd become so popular this season or that I'd continue rippling for months.
In the preview photo on the magazine's website you can't see the dangly rings, so here they are.
