Hello all - I'm a newbie who loves looking at all your projects.

I am interested in trying this scarf
http://boogaj.typepad.com/photos/kn...mina_scarf.html

What other yarns--preferably variegated--would work well in this pattern? I'm just not sure I want to spend the money on the diakeito, though it's gorgeous.... (on that note, any guesses as to which diakeito diadomina colors she used?)

Thanks for any help you can offer!

I've seen a few in Noro Kureyon out there. I think that every variegated yarn will actually work with this pattern.
I'm planning to knit this scarf with some self-striping sock yarn :D

Edited to say: I'm doing this pattern right now in three different solid colors, so every triangle has another color.

You can try searching on Yarndex (http://www.yarndex.com/) for something with the same weight/fiber content...
