Japanese Garden Shawl

Wendy Johnson was selling this pattern to raise money to benefit the Japanese earthquake victims.   When I saw this pattern I knew it was perfect for the Penthouse Silk Lace from Neighborhood Fiber co.  It’s a really thin yarn, that was a little tricky to work with while stitching the first couple of rows.  I had a hard time just getting the needle through the loops, and the knitting kept twisting.  After a couple of rows those problems worked themselves out and it was a great yarn to work with. I wore this shawl when the girls and I went to see the play Wicked.
