I've Got the Blues

This is the amount of yarn I have left at the end of the 31st row of a 32 row lace border pattern in Not Just Plain Jane's Starry Night Shawl . I should mention that this is also all I have left of the yarn (Blue Heron Rayon Metallic). I still have the last row (650 stitches), a crocheted bind off, and a shell border. I was wisely warned off attempting to knit the last row with that little bit; I was considering it. (Thank you - you know who you are.)
I looked through some of my yarn and found 3 possible candidates for finishing up. Which one do you think works the best? Left/ Center/ Right? I welcome suggestions for which color works best.

So the good news is that I'm truly nearly done with my Starry Night Shawl. The bad news is that there has to be a last minute yarn substitution. It's like a yarn understudy. ;)

I think center.

I think you should get more of the same yarn. The shawl is too beautiful and the color substitution may later make you crazy!

I like the center yarn best but think you should try to get more of the same yarn you were using.
