Scarf, mauve cotton and silk

I have this yarn in a deep cherry red color, and when I saw this lovely mauve I knew I would love working with it.  It's not exactly a straightforward color and tends to be nice in lots of different kinds of light.

I love this yarn!  It just feels so good going through my fingers because of the silk that is blended in with the cotton. I love the way it shows all the stitch definition.  It drapes beautifully and the heaviness is dreamy. It's an older yarn, and it's no longer easily found in retail markets.

At this point it's about a third of the way done.  It's a heavy fabric because the yarn is heavy and I've made a dense texture by using the small needle and the garter stitch, which can be rather thick.

It's perfect for "public knitting" because the stitch is very straightforward and distractions don't disrupt the flow.
