Sock-Yarn Shawls II: Starlit

I've drawn the winner for the giveaway of Twigg Stitch by Vicki Twigg. Using a random number generator the winner is....Linda Rumsey. Congrats! Please check your Ravelry mailbox for a message. Thanks to everyone for entering! Didn't win the book, but want one? You can get one here. And now, back to your regularly scheduled blog series.... :)

In today's Sock-Yarn Shawls II pattern feature, it's the first of the larger shawls--Starlit!
This is the last of the traditional bottom-up short-row shawls in the book. I think the gradient yarn really adds a lot of interest to the shawl. How about you?

The yarn I used is Twisted Fiber Art's Muse in the Phantom Evolution (you'll need the large 660 yard ball to complete this shawl). I love this yarn. And I love the colorway. You may remember I used this same exact yarn for my crocheted Honey, Honey Shawlette:
Anyway, back to Starlit. I love that this shawl is a little bit bigger than the usual short row shawls that I make. There is an almost endless number of ways to wear it!
The shawl would be great in lots of colors, not just gradients. I also think it would be very pretty doing the lace in a solid color, then switching to a variegated yarn or maybe even doing stripes in the stockinette short row section. Definitely a shawl where you can play with color!

Stay tuned - I'll be back on Thursday to talk about another larger shawl. It'll be all about Earth & Sky!
