I really love how this one turned out and wouldn't have minded using even four skeins (as the book calls for) of yarn if, after two skeins, the scarf would not already have been about 150 cm (60"). That was a length I could live with, after all you don't have to wrap all scarves around your head before caring for your neck... ;-)
The Koigu did take some time to be knit into this scarf. To me it felt decidedly thinner than the mediumweight Socks That Rock (Oh, I'd love to try more of their colourways but am on buying local mode again...) and in fact the Koigu scarf is about 2 cm narrower than the STR scarf.
There's a little pooling here and there and the scarf is looking much more jumbled and turbulent (obviously I am on the edge of my English as I surely do not know how to describe my impression of the yarn properly), which might be a result of the quicker colour changes of the yarn. Overall I think it results in a lovely, homogeneous blend of beautiful colours.
