Sources for Yarn?

Well, knittin' momma saw my stash entry, where I mentioned that I've hit most of the sites online for inexpensive yarn and she wondered if I'd share my secrets! Well, of course, there really isn't any big secret! Elann.com, smileysyarns.com, knitting-warehouse.com, and onefineyarn.com (which is where the alpaca in the photo below came from, and tho' I can't say it was "cheap" it wasn't outrageous, either!). And jimmybeanswool.com of course. Other than that, I do shop patternworks.com at times. Even though their prices are a little higher, their customer service is phenominal! And ebay! Oh, yes, ebay.

knitting-warehouse is amazing. I have ordered both yarn and my beloved Susan Bates Quicksilver circular needles from them, and they are speedy, speedy! Smiley's often has internet sales at 99 cents per skein - I was able also to get my Susan Bates Quicksilvers for $3.99 the other day, just certain sizes were available, but those were what I needed. You have to watch, like any other savvy shopping you do, but the deals are out there. And of course, I'm an elann.com aholic! Take my credit cards away, please. My last order will be my last order for awhile...will be here early next week!

Knitpicks.com is my next place to order from - AFTER the yarn diet!

Okay, so now that I've given these sites such great reviews, do you think they'll offer me a discount? Or perhaps a gift certificate? Probably not, but as long as they keep their prices where they are, that's okay with me.

And thank you, thank you FiberRAOK!! I'm so pleased to be a new member! (see the button over there ----->)

hehehe, I missed your stash picture the other day. Wow. Now I see why you were so desperate for the yarn diet button. I skipped out of the "flash your stash" thing everyone was doing b/c I was afraid it would force me to go on a yarn diet. lol. Wow, your yarn should does make me excited though! Bet you just love to look at it! :-)

You didn't mention knitpicks.com - importing yarns from the Andes and cutting out the middlemen to keep the prices down. I ordered some yarns to make felted bags, and the quality was similar to Cascade 220 I had been using, but about half the cost per project. Thanks for turning me on to some new sources.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
