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...

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.
