That is beautiful. I've had this pattern bookmarked for a while, but I have a few other projects to finish up before I try this one. I'm still searching for the right yarn.

While this yarn was a joy to knit... the mohair fuzz made dropping the stitches a pain in the arse! SO... I suggest a very smooth yarn. Highly suggest a very smooth yarn.
