WOWIE!! That is gorgeous!! Too bad we have to order another skein to make the knee-highs...hehe, I predict the BMFA team will be inundated with requests! :D

I'm sure BMFA will let us purchase an additional skein--I think they might have said as much at some point--but I did e-mail them to ask if they would make ordering and pricing info for this yarn available on the blog. I'm sure they will when they have a minute to breathe! ;)

And thanks for the comment on my yarn!

oh, I'm glad I looked! Although now the waiting will be worse! I can't wait to get my hands on that!

I agree too bad they didn't send two skeins for the knee socks!

wow gorgeous!! Are the two circulars there for two circular knitting, or something else? Just wondering whether I really need to buy a second 2.75mm needle (in fact, I only have 2.5 and 3, and one of each to boot).

Can't wait to see how you get on with the socks (and I can't wait to cast on!) :)

Thank you so much for posting the spoiler pics!

I'm looking forward to getting mine later this week or the beginning of next week. Woot!

As for 2 circs. It's actually rather easy. This tutorial was very helpful for me:

Thanks for the link :)

oh by the way, thanks for the spoilers! You have no idea how the piccie fix has helped my waiting-for-RSC-kit jitters! I was going up the wall with suspense.

here's another link for 2 circulars - http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/advanced_techniques/ look for the small diameter knitting technique (should be second down) and watch the vid. I think I'll stick with magic loop - I find it a bit cumbersome with the two circs, but try it out, it may really work for you. I didn't get my package today :( but fingers are crossed for tomorrow's post!

Oh dear I can't see all the piccies of all your goodies !! They are not showing up for me boo hoo :(

I can't see them either but the yarn looks delicious.

There are only 2 pictures. I have to put in lots of spoilers so that other club members don't see by accident. :)

I can't wait to get my STR shipment! I'm so excited for it.
I'm also considering a Vanessa sweater. I started a short-sleeved sweater that's pretty, but maybe not me. I'm considering frogging it and starting something different. Vanessa was on my list of maybes!
Thanks so much for the well wishes!
