I have shopped a lot at Knit Picks. I love their stuff, and the free shipping that always forces me to spend $50. What other online shops are good?

I've only ever ordered from
Knit picks--Love the needles, not so fond of the yarn I've gotten,
LittleKnits--Love the sales
Yarn.com (Webs)-- Good sales, too.

I've only ordered from KnitPicks and Elann. I have been very happy with the yarn I've gotten from both places.
Elann has a wider selection of yarns than KP, but don't have free shipping. The prices in the bargain bin are pretty good though and shipping from Canada is not too bad.

Since there is no LYS anywhere nearby all my shopping for yarn, needles and accessories has been on line. I guess I would have to say that Yarn Country (which is having a sale right now up to 45% off, also quite a nice selection of well-known yarn) and Jimmy Beans Wool are my favorites. Both offer free s/h with a purchase of $75.00 and very prompt delivery unlike Yarn Market and Royal Yarn. Knit Picks needles arrived super fast but have yet to order their yarn. Will give it a try when I catch up.

yarn.com (Webs) is my usual online place to go. They've been pretty consistently reliable. Keep in mind, though, that the quantities listed online are not necessarily up to date.

if they do not have enough they will always special order it and I love the discount

I shop Knit Picks & Webs and get great yarn and book deals. I also love to look around and shop a little on www.simplysockyarn.com (http://www.simplysockyarn.com)

Littleknits http://www.littleknits.com/ has good sales all the time but I've never bought anything from them. I've gotten stuff from patternworks http://www.patternworks.com/ and they are reliable.

LITTLEKNITS!!!!! Number One for me. Prices and service can't be beat.

Webs, LOVE Webs and I also go the store several times a year too.

Elann and Yarn and Fiber Company have excellent service and are FAST.
