Red Rock Canyon Shawl Complete


I finished the shawl over the weekend and gosh, I wish it was cold outside so I could wear it!  I know, I know, all you summer loving people out there just groaned and grumbled a bit.  I'll be quiet and wait patiently for fall, but it won't be easy.


This knit required focus, no talking and chatting while knitting.  The pattern has both written directions and charted ones.  I loved the charted ones immensely, they were color coded and the symbols were easy to memorize.


The wool is madelinetosh merino light, one of my favorite brands.  I was pleasantly surprised when soaking this shawl that the purple did not bleed into the gray.  An added bonus!

  11. Beautiful! The shawl looks complicated, yet fun to knit and certainly lovely to wear. Madtosh is a great yarn for the elegant shawl. Beautifully done, Karen.
    I'm hanging on to summer with a tight grip. It doesn't last long enough to wish it away.
