Thanks for all your well wishes. They worked!
Quick pics before running off to work this morning!
I love how soft this turned out. The yarn is quite springy so the motifs are a bit more elongated than I expected (but still pretty). If I were not in such a rush to get this done I might have swatched and gone down a hook size.
It was fun wearing it around school today. More than one person stopped me to get a better look. =-)
