I received my yarn from Elann on Saturday. The Esprit is fabulous! I love it and the colors are exactly what I was hoping they would be. During the fun Woodland Woolworks outing on Friday, I found some Classic Elite Star, a cotton/lycra blend yarn that was at one of my LYS, but in limited colors. The variety at WW was better and I almost purchased some, not knowing what the Esprit would be like. I'm glad I waited. I just need to knit up a swatch now, so I can get started on the mini.
PS On Friday, we went to three different yarn stores, two of which had discounted yarns, and I bought nothing! What's wrong with me?!
