Yummy greens...

I recently discovered the beauty of the color green after winning this on e-bay:

Isn't that yummy? It's from handpainted yarns. I've been dreaming of what shawl this may become. I've got about 1500 yards, which should allow me to make a good size shawl. Any suggestions?

Then today I got my package from my flip flop pal Missy:

How spoiled am I? And look at all the green! How did you know Missy? Missy included so many goodies: a huge bag (which a knitter & a mom always needs), green flip flops, really cute, fun flip flop goodies (I searched for these for her package & couldn't find anything), a very interesting book for me & one for the boys, some yummy Trekking xxl (do you see the green in it?), and the pattern for flip flop socks (which I made last year for Q, but never actually printed the pattern. I will knit these again!). Thank you so much Missy! I love my goodies!

Cute flip flops! And the green yarn is wonderful -- what about the Flower Basket Shawl (I enjoyed knitting it) or even the Leaf Lace Shawl? And I just got the new IK in yesterday and there is a beautiful new shawl pattern there too!
