Whew!

That's a LOT of sewing.  I'm not sure I'll make it to 200 yards for the year, but it is REALLY nice to get some projects finally done.

Last night I wanted to unwind with some simple knitting, and my current knitting projects are in trickier spots, so I dug out one of my "surprise" projects:

In July of last year, before climbing back on the sheep, I ordered several yarns for projects, bagged them up with the details, and put them away as future "surprises" for myself when I was feeling the need for new yarns.  This
is the first one, and sure enough, I had forgotten all about this yarn so it was a surprise.  Could we have guessed it would be lace yarn?  It's another Begonia Swirl shawl, and I have already cast on.  I love it already!

I think that card is supposed to say, "Send this beautiful yarn to Meredith!"
Hugs,
Meredith

That's a clever idea! Surprises are always fun... even self planned ones!
