Knitting FOs

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
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 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.
