Earth and Skies the Limit!

Allison's Earth + Sky


I was obsessed with using Tosh Light in Maple Leaf, Onyx and Smokestack together in a project but wasn't quite sure what to do. I found the perfect solution in the Earth and Sky shawl. I started knitting it in the medium size about a month before Stephen West came to visit the shop but I made sure to have it finished and blocked for his arrival. It was a really fun shawl to knit and, of course, Madelinetosh is always a pleasure to work with. It is now one of my favorite shawls to wear.


Amber's Earth + Sky


When Stephen visited the shop I fell in love with many of his samples, but the one I wanted to steal away for my very own was his Earth and Sky shawl in luscious Road to China Light. I decided I must make it.


For my shawl I couldn't resist using the same exact yarn in the same exact colors as Stephen's version: Smoky Quartz, Aquamarine and Grey Pearl. I mean, it's such a hot combo! I made the size large and it's the coziest thing I've ever wrapped myself up in!


Next time Stephen visits we can be shawl twinsies!

Love the shawls, Gals! Allison is rocking those colors, and I had the same reaction when I saw West's sample- I wanted the same misty cloud colors, too! But now that I see Allison's... hmmmmm... There are too many choices at Fancy Tiger, and too many projects I want to do. But there are worse problems to have in this world...
