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!
Karen, that shawl is absolutely stunning! You have such a way with yarn...a beautiful way!ReplyDelete
Karen the shawl is absolutely gorgeous! I was ready to queue it up right away until you said total focus... since that's a little hard for me to achieve right now, I'll just enjoy yours. Beautiful work! ChrisReplyDelete
