Lady Fern Targhee

I was gifted 8 ounces of hand painted Targhee top at Christmas. I divided it into thirds by weight. Then stripped the top down to thin pieces. I spun three bobbins and then plied them together, resulting in two skeins of lace weight. One has 339 yards and the other has 358 yards. I had a bit left on a couple of the bobbins so I Navajo plied that and got 30 yards. Came out pretty close by weighing and I tried to spin consistently. I was pleased with the way it came out. I thought it might become a shawl, but I may have to just look at the yarn a while. Any Suggestions?
