Well, I ordered the kit. I have been eyeing that kit for some time on Knit Picks, and I finally bit the bullet and ordered it. Has anyone else here knit it?

One of the gals in my S&B ordered it too but she hasn't done anything but look at all the pages of instructions for it. :)

I've never ordered a kit, but that is gorgeous- steeking, intarsia and all! If you're on Ravelry check the other ones...:inlove:

I've been eyeing it on Knitpicks.com and on Ravelry.com. I'm currently reading all the posts on the KAL for it on the knitpicks forum. I haven't lost all courage yet, but know it will be a challenge. Some are saying you can get two bags out of the kit, so I may knit one as a test-run and give it away. Maybe....if after all that work it may follow me to the grave, who knows! ;)

You can all hold my hand when I cut the steek. That is the only part I am REALLY nervous about. I have done fair isle before, and short rows. Cutting steeks and intarsia are new.
