Home spun and dyed shawl

I was gifted a large cake of home spun and home dyed yarn as a thank you for a lift to a craft  exhibition.  The yarn was probably 3 ply, with speckles of dye in it.  As soon as I saw it I knew it would become a shawl.

The pattern is Holden available on Ravelry.

It made a gorgeous shawl, once blocked it looked great but I must admit before hand it looked like a dish rag.
