Yesterday I got the mail with a fantastic surprise in it! My bestie in California (soon to be in Saudi Arabia) knitted me a shawl! I adore it. There was also, a cute little project bag and a cd with her playing the piano. I haven't listened to it yet, because I have to prepare to cry while I listen to it. I miss her!
I think the pattern is the Holden Shawlette (I know this because it was already in my queue :] ), and she used laceweight yarn.
