In Yellowstone National Park, the Phillips, Greg and Fern rivers join at a junction called Three Rivers which feature hot springs and a spectacular waterfall.
The Three Rivers Shawl is an assymetrical shaped shawl knit from the top down in The Buffalo Wool Company’s Sexy (50% Bison Down/50% Silk) and Earth(90% Bison Down/10% Nylon). This yarn adds to the celebration of this beautiful area in Yellowstone National Park. The pictured shawl features three lace panels representing rivers knit in Sexy, squishy garter stitch panels representing earth and knit in Earth, and a generous lace border knit in Sexy representing waterfalls.
The Buffalo Wool Company is offering two different discounted kits for this shawl. The first kit includes two skeins of Earth and one skein of Sexy, the second kit includes two skeins of Happiness (40% bison down, 40% merino, 20% bamboo) and one skein of Sexy. You can choose your favorite colorway of Sexy for either kit.
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.
You can give Knitwits a call, pick out a skein you like and they will deliver it right to your home.
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.
