Oh, yes. I succumbed. I've been thinking about it for over a year, and once Connie gave me a copy of Wendy Keele's Poems of Color a month ago, I couldn't resist. Such a wee little box arrived at my home via registered mail...
...filled with gorgeous possibilities. Since I need "practice", I've decided to not even tempt myself by opening up the package to run my fingers through the gorgeous 50 angora/50 merino yarn.
The box contained all necessary items (sans needles and markers) for the "Large Lace Collar" Jacket kit from Solveig in Sweden. Also known as the "Large Collar" in Poems of Color. The pattern has been translated by Susanna from Swedish to English, and both versions come with the kit.
What's the big deal? Well, the "Large Collar" pattern in Poems of Color has absolutely no yoke/collar patterning on the back like the original Bohus design.

Solveig was great to work with-- and she mentioned that "The Wild Apple" will be available soon!
