RED ROCKS AND ARROYOS - Tink Yarn Finished Project

Off the needles, and OFF THE HOOK!!!  My "first" project with TINK YARN (actually not my first project using the yarns, but first for this project) finished, blocked, and ready to roll.  For those that dabble in yarns, this stuff is incredibly soft on the needles, and even better cast off and blocked!

The name?  Reminds me of our SW red rock buttes and canyons and the arroyos below, with just enough water to feed the sage and pinion pine that grow there.  (NOTE:  Colors on this project are more "true" in the following photos...this one on the ol' mannequin just didn't have the right light early this morning, but was too great not to include - this shawl has the BEST, deep triangular shape for draping bandanna style.)
For those who DO dabble...here's the info:  TINKYARN.COM is where you can find the yarns. The two colors used here are "Changing Seasons" (the desert rust - a brand new color for them...don't see it on the website yet?  ASK!!!) and;  "Rich Bitch in a Limo" (the blue-green/soft black combo that definitely lent itself to this!).  NO color discharge in my sink last night, when soaking this for blocking.  They pride themselves on this - these are FABULOUS yarns!  The worsted weight is next on the needles.

Outstanding, free pattern from Ravelry.com - PLUMA SHAWLETTE by Lisa R. Meyers (this is my third go-round with it).
