Indian paintbrush is the state wildflower of Wyoming. In Alta you can see the gorgeous flowers in small patches on the roadside and in large swaths in the mountain meadows of the Jedediah Smith Wilderness area, adjacent to Teton National Forest. This delicate lace shawl is a tribute to the wildflower’s fleeting beauty.

It is also the debut pattern of www.SweaterSisters.com – my new yarn venture with knit designer, Lynette Meek.

PURCHASE SEDONA LACE SCARF PATTERN ON RAVELRY

For spring break this year we put the boyz in the car, left our snowy playground in Alta, Wyoming and drove to Queen’s Creek, Arizona to visit my parents and their swimming pool. The weather was perfect and the meals were fabulous (my mom’s a great cook!)

On our way home we took a slight detour to Sedona, Arizona. I was pleasantly surprised when my husband asked if there was a yarn store I wanted to visit. (He’s a keeper!)

We went over to Knitwits located at 2370 West Highway 89A, Suite 3, And found the most wonderful surprise. Tom and Becky Helgesen, owners of the store, bought all of the last of The YarnSisters Black Pearl Yarn in the white colorway and hired local indie dyer, Stacy Yamauchi to transform each skein into some of the most spectacular colors I’ve ever seen.

My beautiful purchase of Black Pearl Yarn

This yarn is heaven to knit! I worked on the design for several week, casting on and ripping out until I felt happy with a pattern that was simple, elegant and not boring to knit. I especially love how the lace pattern shows little purled mountains, as lovely as the red rocks in Sedona. This long rectangle scarf would be just as beautiful using a less-formal fiber like wool.
