Patterns I Love 

This week it's all about finding something to knit with the handspun I finished last night. It's only the second full braid I have finished, but I got 462 yards out of that sucker and I want to make something with it! Here are some pattern ideas I'm tossing around as possibilities for a beautiful, single skein, handspun project.

Joyful Joyful by Megan Williams ♦ Starshower ♦ Moab Shawl ♦ Willoughby ♦ Pebble Beach Shawlette ♦ Nautilis Hat ♦ Fucus Asparagoides Shawl (say that five times fast...) ♦ Annie O'Day

Which would you vote for, given the yarn's color and the fact that it's note quite consistent in weight across the whole skein?
