Sample Pac

Recently, I came across another 'group' on ravelry that I wanted to join. The elann group. Why I hadn't discovered this group preciously, I can't tell you. I love elann. Whether it's an American company that has a Canadian outlet, or a Canadian company that has an American outlet, I'm not sure. But there is enough Canadian content to please this patriotic princess and to make make Elann my online yarn source of choice.

So why I wouldn't think of a 'ravelry 'group', I don't know. But last week I discovered the group and read a discussion about a 'sampler pac'.

Of course, I couldn't let that one pass me by. Especially, when I read that the packs are only available for a couple of days and I saw that the fall pack was up and ready.

Mine arrived in just a few days and includes six 50 gram balls of yarn. All elann dot com yarns, there is Peruvian Highland Donegal, Incense, Peruvian Pure Alpaca, Peruvian Highland Wool, Sierra Aran and Highland Chunky. There are colour-group choices to be had and I chose the rust and cream pack.
I love the colours and what a great way - for $27.00 (Can) including all taxes and shipping - to try new yarns. Hurry on over to the elann site if you are interested and look under 'What's New'.

Thanks for the heads up, both about the Rav group and the elann samplers. The colours look yummy.

Hope you are enjoying your trailer time "up Nor' dere". :-) To speak a little Ravelry to you:

I don't know why but I didn't think you were on Ravelry. I'll have to go look you up next time I'm on!
