Best online shopping for yarn etc.?
My birthday is coming up, and I'm hinting to the family that some knitting supplies would be fun! What is the best place to order yarn, needles, etc. from online? After reading the "What's up with homespun" forum, I'm wary of Lionbrand. Knitpicks is the only other one I'm really aware of, though I'm sure there are millions.

Thanks for your experience and advice!

Pulling out the receipts...

I've ordered from Purlsoho, KP, Elmore-Pisgah (Peaches and Creme), Yarn Barn, Little Knits, Yarn Market, and Ram Wools.

I've had great luck with all of them.

I know that some people also get yarn from various Ebayers.

OVERALL, I think www.Elann.com has great variety of yarn, patterns and thingys. Great delivery service, too. KntiPicks is great for needles and thingys...but the yarn is limited IMHO.

I have also had WONDERFUL experiences from this Ebay yarn shop called the CucumberPatch

She also offers many FREE SHIPPING deals.
