Crescent Moon Shawl or The Beginning of a New Era

When I've started this blog I only had Japanese knitting (and Japanese knitting symbols) in mind, as I could only knit.
Terrible limitation, now that I've discovered the new world of crochet :), decided to extend the scope a bit more.

This is my first crochet project ever and it has been really easy. If you're reading this and still not sure if you want to try crochet, please do: nothing has been so pleasantly rewarding in a long time. (I know, I should get a life :)).

Anyway, ladies, here it is, the Crescent Moon shawl:

The pattern is extensivly described on Ravelry:

and the yarn I've used is Noro silk garden sock, colourway : 245, a bit less than 2 balls.

Worth mentioning: there is a very helpful discussion in the Japanese forum around the chart symbols which will help any total beginner. (Search the forum for 'Crescent moon shawl').

Over to you to publish your latest Japanese project ! (see, I'm not saying 'knitting project' anymore :)
