I guess the title of the thread pretty much says it all. :teehee:
I want to order some yarn online, since the craft store near me doesn't have a big selection of yarn, and there is no yarn store anywhere nearby. I've read that most people are happy with knitpicks.com, and I was wondering if there are any more sites like that with good prices and good service. So what is your favorite online yarn store?

I've discovered that www.littleknits.com has some wonderful prices. Webs and elann are good, too. There are lots more, but those are what jump out.

A lot depends on what yarn you want to buy, too. I always Google the yarn I want in hopes of finding a sale. :teehee:

I like Webs and Elann for my general yarn needs. I don't order from KP very much anymore, but it's nothing against KP, I'm just usually in the market for things they don't carry. For sock yarn, I have fallen in love with The Loopy Ewe (http://www.theloopyewe). Her service is really fast - I placed an order on Monday or Tuesday and it was in my mailbox by Friday or Saturday.

ETA: Oh shoot Ingrid!!! I just visited LittleKnits and they've got Fleece Artist on sale. Why oh why I did I click that link!!! :teehee:

I don't know that I have a favorite "one" place on line. I usually go for who is carrying what I want at the time. I do love LittleKnits and I've ordered sock porn from the Loopy Ewe. I guess I'm an equal opportunity shopper :)

Thanks, guys! I've added the links you named to my bookmarks, and am going to do some serious shopping. :cheering:

I don't have a favorite. I do shop at Knit Picks and PatternWorks a lot. :teehee:
