It's beautiful!! I downloaded the pattern, but not sure if I'm ready for knitting in the round yet. Hopefully someone will try it for you!!
The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.
