I am finally blocking my Flower Petal Shawl today, and I also spent some time updating Flickr and Ravelry with a few old knitting projects that I hadn't gotten around to uploading yet. Most had already been posted in my LJ but below the cut is a pair of socks that I don't think I posted about.

alpaca & silk/mohair petal shawl
Pattern: Flower Petal Shawl by Elann
Needle:
US 6 / 4.0 mm
1 skein (341.1m) Habu Kasuri Silk Mohair A-32D
Purchased at: TKCS Sep 07
2 skeins (804.7m) Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud "autumn heather" (via swap with [livejournal.com profile] sistercoyote)

The pattern calls for worsted weight and I did it in lace weight, but it’s a reasonable size anyway. (I am not sure if I ended up doing more pattern repeats than specified.) I like how the strip of Habu works with the Alpaca Cloud.

The shawl is amazing. I really like the combination of the two yarns. I'm playing with lace again, but nothing that large or that includes mohair, which makes frogging lace errors really challenging.

Those socks look so warm and happy! And the shawl, just beautiful.
