I know that I'm usually way behind the times. I like to discover whatever the general population loves about a month after everyone else moves on but have you seen this scarf?!

It's called Almost Ovals by Anne Hanson. I am smitten.

From Anne's website, Knitspot:

Distinct ribs of stockinette crisscross gently over a purl background, creating a deeply-carved pattern that is further accented by eyelet highlighting. The stitch pattern looks to be cabled, but is achieved with simple decreases and has a pretty reverse side as well. This project is a good all ‘rounder for beginning and experienced knitters alike.

The pattern is $6 and I think that as soon as I finish one of my current projects this is going to be the next thing I knit. I have two skeins of Shadow Lace in Vineyard Heather from Knitpicks left over from another project. The pattern calls for one skein of lace weight yarn 380 yards. Shadow is 440 yards. Since I have 2 skeins, I'm thinking one for me and one for someone else for a Christmas or birthday gift. I am so in love with this.
