From Shawls and Scarves: The Best of Knitter's Magazine:
"This shawl I call "Catharina."  It incorporates the splendid shaping typical of Faroese shawls, the beauty of lace, the simplicity of knitting form the neck down, the exquisite touch of merino/alpaca wools, and inspiration proved by many, many wonderful individuals.
