We went to Sedona on Friday specifically to visit Red Rock Knits . I had read some good reviews of the shop online and wanted to see if they stocked some Sedona-only yarn. Yes, indeed, they do. It is a small shop that seemed pretty much depleted (it is the end of the summer tourist season in Sedona about now) but I found some beautiful handpainted yarn by someone named Mary Gavan (I can't find any info about her online, so if you know anything about her let me know). On the left is about 500 yards of rayon/cotton in a colorway called "Sharhazade", all blues and purples. On the right is 8 ounces/150 yards of 100% wool in a "panda' colorway. This just begs to be felted, don't you think?
