Ok so obviously this is a super-easy project and yes I know it's summer, but I became obsessed with making a striped Noro scarf Brooklyn Tweed style (http://brooklyntweed.blogspot.com/2007/04/noro-scarf.html) and I'd really like to see how other people's are turning out because I know there are some of you out there besides me who are making them! So... knit-along / post-your-picture along? Mine's almost done and I'll show it off soon...

here's a noro scarf i did awhile ago.  it didn't come out as nicely as some other ones i've seen.  in the middle of the scarf both of my two different colorways of noro changed to the same color at the same place.  i thought that was rather odd.

I found that started to happen in a few areas of mine....but in my true obsessive-compulsive fashion, I broke the yarn and started other colors further down the skein.  The leftover pieces of yarn were later used in the scarf....to my delight!

the kuryeoun can be scratchy.  with my scarf i soaked it in cold water and lots of liquid fabric softener before blocking.  that cut down on some of the scratchyness.  the scarf isn't super soft but it's definitely more wearable now.

I have a stripey Kureyon scarf that I wear every day in the winter because it goes with everything!  I have never felt like it was too scratchy, I think either that it isn't or you break it in because it's such a great scarf!
