Canyons at Sunset

 So after a few weeks of working on my newest pattern, delays from a yarn deficiency and being sick,  it finally culminated into me being finished with the shawl! It is a rather large, rustic crescent shawl that is made with Malabrigo Twist an Aran weight yarn(that's a thicker yarn for those of you who aren't knitters!) in the Liquid Ambar and Applewood colorways. I have come to realize I LOVE large shawls and WARM shawls and texture and color....*sigh*, I suppose that large shawls are not everyone's cup of tea but I guess I just like the fact that the large shawls are super cozy and warm, warm, warm. I can't wait to test this theory out this winter!:) The entire shawl and name were inspired by the colors of the yarn which reminded me of pictures I have seen of canyons out west, specifically at sunset and dusk when all of the beautiful colors of the desert and sunset look absolutely sublime.....I have never scene it firsthand, but I definitely hope to see it someday. I wanted to sorta combine that inspiration with the rustic inspirations of the desert, sand and the lace section reminded me of sun rays.....so overall I really like the end result.:) Let me know whatcha think!:)

Remember the Sparrows....


29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.

30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 

31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Matthew 10:29-31New International Version (NIV)
