Now what?

A couple of weeks ago, I started spinning some Masham.

 It is all spun up, has been for a soak, got thwacked and re-skeined.  
So, now what?  It is not super soft, in fact it is a little teeny bit scratchy, so not a good choice for something next to the skin.

I was thinking about a shawl that could be worn over a t-shirt and wrapped around my neck like a scarf.  
 It is a fingering weight and measures about 340 yards.  Here are my thoughts and I am asking you to pick for me.  My choices are:  Dragonfly Wings, Abyssal, The Sunlight Shawl for Sad People, and Hecate.  What do you think?  Tell me, please, I am itching to start something besides hexipuffs!

  1. I vote Dragonfly Wings!! Maybe it won't be so scratchy once it's knitted and blocked? I've never spun anything, so I don't know....

  7. I think it would be a beautiful colorway for Dragonfly Wings. There's something that's both strong and delicate about both the yarn and the pattern that seems to match them well.

  10. The yarn looks scrumptious. I would use it for a lacy shawl, I think
