Are there any web sites or stores that sell yarn at discount rates? Sometimes I don't really care about dye lot, etc and it would be nice to know where to go for that.

Discount Yarn Sales (http://www.discountyarnsale.com/default.cfm) is a great place to get yarn for cheap.

Knit Picks (http://www.knitpicks.com) is a favorite of mine and of many on this fourm.

Elann (http://www.elann.com) also has some fabulous cheap yarn!

Have you tried recycling yarn from secondhand sweaters? I've found loads of lovely yarn for just a dollar or two that way. Sometimes thrift stores have yarn, too.

My mom likes Smiley's (www.smileys.com). The only downside is that you have to order $40 at a time, and with their prices that can be difficult!

Thanks! I thought of recycling from sweaters in thrift stores, but I thought after washed a few times doesn't it become like felting and won't come apart? Or do you mean look for the brand new sweaters only?

Cuuuuuuuute pups Sara! They're fun dogs!

Thanks, I'll check out Smiley's too.
