The photo is a (pre-blocking) preview of the first of these patterns, a long cotton summer scarf. I'm thinking about adding some fringe, and perhaps a few beads but I haven't decided yet.
I received yarn support from Knit Picks (blessings rain upon their heads) in their new line of simply cotton heathers, and I am in love with this yarn. It is butter soft, and although it may be hard to tell from my photo, the heathers create a subtle depth to the color, adding a glow, not quite a sheen to it.
This particular shade is Carnelian Heather. I have other colors for the remaining two patterns in this series.
