Two shawls

This is Mom's Litka Dimnum shawl from Cheryl Oberle's Folk Shawls book. It was her Christmas present. It is triangular, not whacked off as it appears here. I used's Alpaca fina in "spiced claret" which is a rusty red with castings of dark blue. I'm really happy with the way it came out.

Sarah Blanch shawl is knitted to look like hairpin lace. It is for ME and is made of the beautiful alpaca that I got for the Icarus shawl. It was spun and dyed by Birgitta Nostring of All Strings considered. It is even softer than the stuff from Elann, but that was from Peru and this grew originally in Michigan, I think.
