ah, you gotta love new yarn store discoveries! :heart: I have one here in Mpls called Crafty Planet, it's on the map site where everyone posted lys. While browsing here (at work... no work got done...) I also found knitting-warehouse.com
they have a flat rate shipping of $6, and everything seems to be about 10-20% cheaper than anywhere else--- and I've been digging! :hiding:
has anyone else found CHEAP yarn websites???

Lots of inexpensive great yarns sites...a search will probably turn up more but off the top of my head

divaknitting.com (of course, I am quite fond of this one ;) )
elann.com
knitpicks.com
yarn.com
woolneedlework.com

I'm sure you'll get lots of other suggestions!

Ditto what kemp said. Then there's my friend Angelika's Yarn Store (http://yarn-store.com/) and KPixie (http://kpixie.com/) and TheKnitter (http://theknitter.com/).
Almost forgot, my fave ebay Store (http://stores.ebay.com/Oregon-Trail-Yarn-and-Books_W0QQssPageNameZstrkQ3amefsQ3amesstQQtZkm).

I'm a fan of Hawthorne Yarn (http://stores.ebay.com/Hawthorne-Home-Yarns). I'm not affiliated; I just love her yarn. She's a sweet person and she has some gorgeous stuff.

Crafty Planet in Minneapolis - okay! A new place for me to shop??? Have you seen "All About Yarn", its in Coon Rapids. They have a super nice variety of wool.

janie-Crafty Planet is right on the corner of Lowry and Johnson in NE Mpls. It's not very big or anything, but they have a nice variety of crafty stuff, yarn, fabric, needles, kids stuff, etc. It's where I buy my books from because the woman that runs it I think has used all the books she sells so helps me pick them out. I haven't branched out to any other yarn stores yet, didn't even know there were any around here!

Hey Sissy,

I meet a woman at Yarntopia in Hoston a couple of weekends ago and she said the store you mentioned was "the" store in the DFW area. :) I can't wait to go, but it might be spring before that happens.
