I just bought this pattern so it is my next project.  I just have to finish what is on my needles now so I will probably start in 2 or 3 weeks.  Anyone interested?

Actually, when you buy the pattern, the designer, Annie, will give you the link to the Yahoo Groups knit-along.  Annie herself answers questions about every 1-2 days.  There is a photo gallery, and knitters have listed the various yarns they have substituted for the recommended pricey silk.  It is a very well-organized knit-along! 
Unfortunately, there were many mistakes in the original pattern (such as typos in most of the charts).  I hope the pattern has been updated...  Otherwise, you *must* check the website before starting to knit!  The original pattern has many inconsistencies: the key for all the different chart symbols appear only on the 3d chart, the list of abbreviations on page 1 omits one crucial one (VDD).  You need to flip to page 14 to finally find out what "VDD" is. 
I feel like I'm a test knitter for this! 
I'm waiting a little bit, until the other knitters have worked out all the kinks and then I'll start knitting.  I have to admit that I'm somewhat disappointed that a respected designer would sell such a messy pattern!  Didn't she have anyone to proof read?

I. Need. That. Pattern. O_O

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

wow, I really love this pattern... but I soooo don't need another project to add to my list!  I will probably make this at some point - in the meantime I will look forward to seeing y'alls...
