They re all so beautiful, it's hard to pick a favorite! But, I like the blue/green one lots. as well as the first, and then the fourth.
I wish I had the yarn laying around, I'd start one right now!

Oh my!  That first photo reminds me of a quilt my grandmother made many, many years ago.  And the colours in the blue/green shawl are just perfect.

I'm not on Ravelry, so can't see the pattern, but is this that one where you start in the centre of the long straight side, and work outwards towards the point getting bigger and bigger as you go?

This shawl is knit that way, although, almost all of the shawls I have done are similar in that regard.  Just working back and forth and increasing as you go.  This pattern has several different stitch patterns used in different repeats.

So, are you starting at the neck edge, or the lower edge?

The middle neck and working outwards.

These shawls are lovely!  I don't generally buy patterns from Ravelry but this would be a great way to expand my knitting capabilities.  Beautiful work!  And your handspun yarn is lovely as well!
