Forrest canopy and my exchange package

Finished casting off my forrect canopy shawl last night. It's about 44x20 unblocked. 400+ stitches. It took forever!!!! Now all it needs is blocking ..... kind of like the shawl I finished for my daughter over a month ago ..... no really I'm not lazy.
And I received my defeat the winder doldrums package from my wonderful exchange buddy Felicia. The dishcloths are beautiful! Included was a notepad, a few patterns, some wonderful soap, candy, some yarn, a needle gauge (which I really really need), and the cutest stitch markers (one is a little snowman).
Thanks Felicia! Oh well, gotta go hide my candy ..........

Hmmmm, I seem to remember that somebody has been sick the past couple of weeks, so if not blocking a shawl when one is on death's door lazy, what the heck am I?!?!?
