I checked it out but was afraid i would not be able to put together a decent package without many trips to Salt Lake City. I noticed you had to send Hogwarts stitch markers and I was not sure where you could get those. Let me know how you like it and maybe I will join next time.
BTW, has your sock yarn from Wool Girl arrived yet? I cannot wait to see pictures on your blog.
