I have knitted an other shawl. It is 'blue faced Leicester' sock yarn, hand dyed by Susan Ford,color Lilac swirl. Very soft yarn and nice to knit with.
But for a shawl I prefer yarn with a "shine". The pattern is from Evelyn Clark called "Shetland Triangle Lace Shawl". You can buy the pattern here.
It is easy to follow and gives a nice result. I used one skein ( 400 yard)
The size of the shawl is 63" ( 160cm) wide and 23"( 58cm) high.
Below a detail photo and a photo of blocking the shawl after knitting.
