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.

We had some great trips this summer visiting family and friends in Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Palo Alto, but were always happy to return to our cabin overlooking  Palisades Lake in Idaho.

Surrounded by pines, aspens, hummingbirds, chipmunks, deer, elk and the occasional moose, Palisades Lake shimmers and glitters in the sun.

When I was planning the Palisades Lace Cowl I knew I wanted a yarn that was delicate and shimmery and would showcase the undulating lace pattern I had in mind.  Artyarns Beaded Mohair fit the bill.

With a blend of 60% silk with silk-strung Murano glass beads and 40% mohair,  Beaded Mohair is an ethereal yarn that is a pleasure to knit.  Iris Schreier founded Artyarns in 2002 and is dedicated to providing responsibly sourced luxury yarns manufactured in the USA.  You can find a LYS that carries Artyarns to purchase online here.

I hope you enjoy knitting and wearing the Palisades Lace Cowl.
