Beatrice Shawl

Sometime I have a result in dyeing that I am not quite that happy with.
Take this yarn; It is a beautiful soft 125g of merino, gorgeously spun originally white.
Than I dyed it randomly with yellow red and blue dye powder and although I wasn't totally disappointed it turned out very different from what I had hoped for.
What to use it for??????????
So it lay in waiting for more then a year, perhaps even two until this pattern caught my eye....
So I knitted it.

And blocked it.

And now I like it a lot.
The pattern was very suitable for this yarn and turned it into a very happy shawl that is light and very soft.
