Zen Yarn Garden and Ruth of PennyRose Yarns. For this project the design and the yarn are both from Ruth. The yarn is PennyRose Benji, a 100% superwash merino, 100g, approximately 470 yards. The color is Light Orchid. The shawl is being knit from the bottom up, so we started out with 311 stitches. This clue is the border.
