I finally finished my Sahara! 



As usual, I'm well behind the curve, I suppose.  But I'll just say, as everyone else has: this is a wonderful pattern! 

I used Goshen yarn from yarn.com (cotton/modal/silk) - inexpensive and I loved it.  And of course made some mods to the shaping.  Also left off the lace at the bottom hem (didn't need to be drawing the eye there, you know). 

I kept trying the lace in the pattern and just didn't like how it was coming out - too poofy - so I replaced it with this eyelet rib lace from the Vogue Stitchionary:



Here they are, compared: 



More pictures and talk on my blog. 

Thanks for looking!  Hope lots more people are encouraged to knit this - it's surprisingly easy!

P.S. Not exactly rare knowledge, but I should include the pattern source, shouldn't I?  http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-031

The shaping is beautiful.  I want to add this to my list, but I need to finish things up first.  I love the color- do you remember the name/number?
It's really beautiful!

Maybe I'm behind the curve too, because I hadn't seen one of these before.  I love it!  Thanks for posting a link to the pattern.

Wow, I hadn't seen that pattern yet either, but I love it!  Nice modifications, too.  I love the drape of the yarn you chose.  Very pretty  Cheesy

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
