After a few calls to local yarn stores (not the chains) I found out that they do not carry some of the yarns I need for my new projects - even tho there might be acceptable substitutions available. Thus, I am considering ordering online.

I am looking at yarncountry.com right now, where do you like to shop? Did you have any online bad experiences when it comes to yarn stores?

I am a little reluctant to order online, I am a texture kind of girl, I need to touch to make my mind.

Thanks!

I miss the texture, too. It drives me nuts. But I do sometimes (often) buy from http://yarn.com

I also have bought yarn from yarn.com. They are very prompt with getting their orders out.

Scroll down the board to 'Online shopping for knitting supplies & yarn' for more link suggestions.

I've shopped for yarn at knitpicks.com and at fabuluosyarns.com and have been happy with the products recieved. "knitpicks" has very good prices.

Hope it helps

I've ordered from KnitPicks, Yarn Market, and purlsoho.com. I basically have to order most of my yarn online. Oh, and I bought yarn from Gail Knits (gailknits.com) when I was in Las Vegas a month ago. They are wonderful about helping you out with the yarn texture, projects, etc.

Webs (yarn.com) is having a great sale right now with even some great staple yarns like cascade 220. One sale for the month of
April and another sale the month of May. Some of the staple yarns are on sale both months.

You can listen to the Webs podcast (http://yarn.com/s/podcast.html)...they talk about the sales they are having.

The best prices I've ever seen anywhere--including Wal-Mart or Hobby Lobby--are at Knitpicks.com and Littleknits.com .

Thank you very much everybody :) I ended up going to a few yarn stores and still did not find the exact yarn I needed. That didnt keep me from buying of course, but it will make my shopping much easier for next time: from home!! :D

Of course! We would think less of you if it did.
