Elann!
I didn't realize how EXCELLENT their prices are until now! (Never really checked them out before now! ) In random browsing, I saw several luscious yarns in the $2.50-$3.50 range. I'm in awe!

I'm proud to announce that Elann is now a major advertiser here. In fact they are my first official Video Sponsor.

I've got another major advertiser coming up this week, another very pleasant surprise, stay tuned!

But Amy. I love elann. And it's killing me. You saw what I bought! I think I need to go look at my new yarn to remind myself. And my MC bill.

Just think of how much happiness and peaceful knitting time each skein of yarn brings to your life.

(Do I get an award for being such a good enabler? )

Spend, Ingrid, Spend!! Bwaaahaaahaaa. (evil laugh.)

I too am an elann lover--and of course, I KnitPicks too! I got my little 5 inch Bryspuns for sock knitting for less than $6 a set of 5!! I was extremely happy with everything I've ordered there--and they also have swaps too, if you've never looked there!! It's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FUN to shop for yarn--but I. MUST.NOT. SHOP. FOR. ANYTHING. NOW. :(

Elann's great! I subscribed last year to the samples and was given the sample subscription again this year. I like how subscriptions and book purchases are paid back in credits. I've had a lot of fun buying yarns I never would have been able to afford elsewhere.

I'm glad they're one of your sponsors - I'll have to click through to them from here next time I place an order.

A friend told me about Elann last year right after I learned to knit. I've gotten beautiful yarn (and great service) from them!

I have a question about the sample subscription...what do you do with the small amounts of yarn? See if you like them so you can buy more, or knit tiny things? Maybe there is more yarn than I realize. Do tell!

Glad I caught this thread! Suddenly, the videos appeared quite differently than they had before and I didn't understand why!

Yay for Elann! I've never ordered from them. Now I must! (Like I need any excuse for such a thing....)
