POOP! okay I totally forgot about the shrinking part.. though which way will it shrink? Width wise or length wise? I don't want the scarf to end up being shorter.
I saw it here http://colorjoy.com/weblog/archives/000407.html
If you scroll down, you will see the scarf. The caption reads "This Noro Kureyon scarf was knit on the diagonal. The yarn just looks wonderful fluffed up after washing! He actually used two different colorways but you can't really tell, they were related enough to just look variegated in long repeats. I love this scarf. I don't love knitting with this yarn, but I must admit it feels a lot nicer after it has been washed a few times."
