Pinner says: Missoni-esque scarf. Looks like linen stitch using multiple colors of variegated yarns - one color per row. Liked that the knitter knit into the back of the loop of the first and last stitches to tighten them.
noro blanket -- nice use of contrasting noro yarns -- usually people make a mess of those yarns because of lack of imagination and also lack of esthetic sense or simple laziness. Actually, a lot of the examples even on the Noro catalogues are plain awful.
