Sock-Yarn Shawls II: Earth and Sky

Today's Sock-Yarn Shawls II pattern feature is Earth & Sky - the "sister" (daughter? relative?) of Briargate from the original Sock-Yarn Shawls book:
I used the exact same construction as I did with the original Briargate. This time I inserted a smaller stitch pattern for the lace portion of the shawl. It ends with a nice loopy edge, which is one of my favorite details to add to shawls. A couple weeks ago I shared a video tutorial for the faux crochet bind off.

This is another one of the shawls I've been wearing a lot since the big box o' book shawls came back home to me:
Earth & Sky is knit out of Fiesta Yarns Baby Boom, a lovely merino/nylon blend. It's listed on Ravelry as a sport weight yarn, but in my opinion it's on the lighter side of sport weight. Really, any fingering or sport weight yarn would work great for this shawl. As for the Baby Boom I used, I love the hint of blue in the brown yarn. I think it pairs nicely with the blue yarn used for the lace. This is definitely another shawl where you can play around with color!

Stay tuned - next week is another week of multi-colored shawls from the book. I can't wait to show them off to you!
