Mykonos

The Mykonos Trunk show is here through this weekend.  If you have not had a chance to see it, please do.  The pictures really don't do justice to the garments or the fabric this yarn creates.
 
An unusual wrapped construction gives Mykonos an interesting texture -- it's a little bit stiff which means that the stitches maintain their shape and create a fabric that's open and airy. This open fabric is perfect for summer wear because it lets air flow through it so you stay cool even on the warmest of days.  

That same texture means that Mykonos fabric doesn't roll, so you can work Odele, a simple v-neck tee shirt in stockinette for that clean, Eileen Fisher look.

Mykonos' attractive, subtle sheen looks great in all the colors - There's a large palette of neutrals - black, white, beige, two grays, as well as rich jewel tones that look just right as the sunlight intensifies with the onset of summer.  

This wrap has been a standout favorite - worked in an easy openwork stitch, it's just the thing to make sure you always look pulled together.  

Come see the Mykonos garments before I have to send them off.  You'll be glad you did!
