The beautiful Oquirrh Mountains are the western border of Salt Lake County. The name, pronounced like "Ochre," has nothing to do with the mineral or the color; it comes from a Goshute word meaning "Wooded Mountain." Although, with canyon names like Yellow Fork Canyon and Butterfield Canyon, the idea of yellow has always been associated with the Oquirrhs. The yarn for this shrug was hand-dyed with Turmeric to create the vibrant yellow you see.

I live and work in Salt Lake City yet I am woefully ignorant about the Great Salt Lake. I am attempting to learn more about the lake that has recently inspired me…and to knit that inspiration. I hope you like the patterns I am creating.
