This almost killed me, but I think it turned out pretty.  It's done in Rowan Kidsilk Haze.  The color is most accurately represented in the first pic, in the last pic you can sort of  see the clear glass beeds I knitted into the ends.

Here's the pattern:
On size 9 needles
Cast on 33
row 1: purl across
row 2: k1 *k3, pull first st over other 2 (and drop it), yo* repeat to last 2 st, k2
row 3: purl
row 4: k2 *yo, k3, pull first st over other 2 (and drop it)* repeat to last st, k1

repeat these 4 rows until the scarf is long enough (they actually said until the end of the ball) cast off
uses 1 ball of rowan kidsilk haze.  I also knitted in 9 evenly spaced clear glass beads on the cast on and cast off rows.

Did it take you to until the end of the ball to get it the length you wanted?

I didn't actually go to the end of the ball.  There's a bit left - just enough (probably) to embellish the edge of a purse or something.  My scarf turned out a bit more than 5 feet long, their pattern said it would be 5'7", so I basically have about 7" of scarf worth of yarn left.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to the yarn store this weekend and I'm going to try to make one for my grandmother, who lives in China.  Smiley

I switched from Susan Bates teflon looking needles to casein needles and it made me soooo much happier.  They were pretty slick, but they had nice pointy tips which really help with the annoying pulling the stitch over thingy.  It took me about 2 weeks, but I was switching off between the scarf and a baby sweater (and didn't knit at all one weekend).  So your mileage may vary.  I mailed it off to grandma on Monday or so, but I haven't heard from her yet, hopefully that means she hasn't gotten it (and not that she doesn't like it!).
