It was a joy to knit.

I ended up binding of halfway through the final pattern repeat because I was paranoid the last ball was dwindling too quickly. It's still plenty long, and I'm sure when I block it it'll bloom a smidge more.
The Details:
Needles: Denise Interchangeables #6 - With the pink cording!
Yarn: 5 balls of Elann Sonata in Gray Slate (mercerized cotton) - 115 yards per ball
More info on my blog.

It looks GORGEOUS!! Thank you also for the yarn alternative!!! I do not knit with silk so I have been searching high and low for an alternative and this looks like it could be it.
