Fifth set of sample skeins


The fifth month (of 12) of sample skeins from Elann arrived early last week. The burnt orange (fourth skein) is particularly lovely (and machine washable!)!


Was considering the Elann sample skein subscription. Is it worth it? The idea is intriguing. Are you pleased with what you've gotten so far?

Hi, Susan - I was just thinking about this the other day! Will I sign up for another sample skein subscription?

I'm not a fan of fancy yarns, although I have bought a supply of Fun Fur and other yarns that were on sale in preparation for the day I play around with Freeform Crochet.

The sample skeins are small - enough yarn for a headband I'd say. I also plan to use these with Freeform Crochet someday.

$52.50 is a high price to pay for these small bits of yarn that you can't really make anything useful from (unless you go Freeform - or, of course, buy full skeins of that yarn and hope the dye lot matches).

I don't think I'll do it again, but I'm not disappointed that I subscribed this time.
