Comments: Noro, thy name is Color! I was reminded of Elizabeth Zimmerman's saying about ribbing, "continue in ribbing until you are sick of it," or something to that effect--pardon my paraphrasing. Oh yes, you will be sick of the 1 x 1 ribbing by the time you reach the end of your yarn. But is it worth it? I think so. Noro can be difficult to knit; it's a bit rough, with vegetable matter and knots here and there--and it's quite expensive! The redeeming feature about this yarn is the ever-unfolding melding of colors that will mesmerize you and keep you knitting to the end.
Virtually every Noro Striped scarf I have seen is beautiful, so I really don't think you can choose the wrong colors. I am particularly fond of Kathy's lovely Noro scarf.
While striving for subdued color in this scarf, I would definitely go more colorful in the next one. Choose two dark colors and two multi-colored yarns and you will have a rainbow of beauty.
