shimmer - a finished shawl

Last month I joined a mystery knit-along. This was totally new to me, and I thought I'd jump right in.

I LOVED it. There is something so fun about not knowing what the next part of your knitting will look like. Will it be lacy? Will it be striped? Will it be both?

Now that the knit-along is over, I can release the name of the pattern. It is Red Rock Canyon by Romi Designs.

I knit this with two skeins of a lovely Sweet Fiber yarn in the Merino Lite weight. The colors were Sea Glass and Ever Gray. Both colors spoke to me.

As the knitting grew and grew and grew, I became increasingly curious as to how it would look when I was finished and it was off my needles. It is huge (wonderfully so).

I love the different parts to the design and how the stripes ripple.

I'm naming my shawl Shimmer. It is a perfect fit.

 It is quite possibly my favorite knitted item ever.

I can't wait to be able to use this on cool summer nights, after a long day in the hot sun.

Sounds like heaven to me.
