Do You Know This Font?

Years ago I made the banner for my blog.  I'm very interested in handwriting, penmanship, calligraphy, etc. so it took a long time to find what I considered to be the perfect font.

What I liked about this font was that it had tidy, even handwriting for all of the small letters, yet the capitals had a bit of interest, some character.

I want to use this font again but I can't.  An old computer overheated and got fried and I lost almost everything on it, including the font file and  I can't remember the name of this font.

Last night I spent hours going through numerous font sites looking for this particular one.  It would  have been offered on a free site or low-cost.  Unfortunately I had no luck.

If you know what this is, please let me know.  I'd really appreciate it.  Leave a note in the comments or send me an email to:     joanne @ jconklin . com  (remove the spaces).  Thank you!

By the way, I watched an interesting documentary about a year ago about the font "Helvetica".  I enjoyed it and I highly recommend it.

UPDATE:  Thanks to some wonderful people in the Designers group on Ravelry, I now know the name of the font.  It's Ariston Medium Italic.  Is it weird to be excited over a font?  If so, then I'm weird!
