Scarf w/French Trellis Border

I'm not one to actually have a lot of projects on the needle. Two to three is the norm for me, but with the completion of my last two projects I actually found myself without anything on the needle, as it were. I mean, come duty as a knitter is to immediately find something and get it started. It didn't take long, all I had to do was open up my Victorian Lace Today. What's not to love about this book. It didn't take me long, since I have my 'must-do' items marked by a post-it note. Next up: Scarf w/French Trellis 98. This is something that caught my eye from the beginning, but I wanted this one for myself so I moved it behind some other projects. So far, it's by the book, the only thing I might change would be the length, we'll see. The yarn, is Knit Picks' Alpaca Cloud - in's a pale blue in case you can't tell.
I will share the little helper that I've used before. See that yarn holder in the upper left it is up close....

You recognize that don't you?? Yep, it's a CD's keeps the skein from rolling all over my lap. It's perfect for lace weight yarn....for heavier yarn, you might put the top back on with a hole cut in the top for the yarn to feed out of.
