I also recently finished a shawl/scarf made from the last part of a hostess gift I received last April (thank you again, Rosemary). I ended up carrying some fuzzy yarn with it, which makes it lovely, although it sheds. Oh well. Being covered in fuzz is part of my personality now, I guess.
And I finally came to terms with the fact that I would never put together the Must Have Cardigan of Yarn Harlot fame ala 2008, so I frogged the whole thing. The yarn is drying after having a bath last night. It will be wound and worked into something I'll wear - right now there are three pattern possibilities.
