Just when I thought I had figured out a project for Kate’s Lace KAL (see the button on my sidebar and join in the fun if you’d like!), I am showered with lovely, lace weight yarn!
My dear friends Cindy and Barbara meet with me over coffee and knitting once a month.  We’ve been chatting and knitting since our boys were in Kindermusik together (11+ years ago)!  I have learned many things from their technical expertise over the years.  More importantly, our time together is therapeutic.  Why?  We have teenage boys – enough said.
We have shared knitting-related gifts over the years and I think I blogged about the SOAK given to us by Barbara.  Cindy’s gift arrived as a New Year’s gift and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  She experimented with kettle-dyeing and I think the result is fantastic!
But this yarn opens up some possibilities for me.  Cindy suggested the lovely project Haruni.
I also saw a nice Argus Shawlette just listed by Wendy of Wendy Knits.

I would be excited to knit a shawl that was not too big and something appropriate for a beginner.  Does anything come to mind or do you have thoughts on some of these suggestions?
