I have started a Noro scarf, inspired by Brooklyntweed. 
See his finished project at http://brooklyntweed.blogspot.com/2007/04/noro-scarf.html


This is the first portion of the scarf.  The colors go so well togethe!


These are the yarns I am using.

Same....what gorgeous colors.

Anyone else worked up one of these?  Does anyone know the proper care and feeding of this yarn for cleaning purposes?

Thank you!  I adore the yarns from Noro - they make me look super talented.  =)

P.S. - I love the "procrastinators unite" bit.

I know this is a simple pattern but my brain wants to tell me I'll have LOADS of ends to weave in after alternating yarns every 2 rows. Am I understanding that correctly?

Thanks!

Thankfully, no!  If you follow his pattern, you carry the non-working yarn up the side, and hide it by slipping stitches.  It works really well - and then you'll just have the first and last ends to weave.  Otherwise, you're right, that would really suck Smiley

I started the same pattern got about half way through and my yarn ended up pooling in some really unattractive ways Sad I've since then frogged it and am working on a 'fake isle' hat.
Yours is gorgeous though! *scarf envy*

No!  You alternate between two yarns every two rows.  I did have some ends to weave in because I found the colors in the two colorways of Silk Garden were getting too similar at a few points, so I broke off the yarn and re-started at a different point.

This was really a fun project and I kept knitting late into the night because I couldn't wait to see how the next section would look...and the next....and the next.....=)

Yep, I ended up breaking my yarns at a few points because they were not looking too different....were you using Silk Garden?
