Welcome to HDF and the forums, Carol! No need to sign up for the floss of the month offerings, just buy them off the shop as you are doing now. The lists are only for full kits, which Vikki dyes on a pre-order basis only. Then there is the Mini Forum, where whoever wants a specific color (custom variegated threads or existing lines of colors or simply larger quantities of the FOTM colors) opens a topic and all who are interested reply to the topic. Once the topic is closed, Vikki dyes the hanks. Please read the pinned topic Skinny on Minis if you want more info on the mini forum.
