Online shopping for knitting supplies & yarn
Good morning!
Can anyone suggest some on-line knitting sources that they would recommend? I'm getting a little bored with the selection at my local craft store chain!
I'm mostly looking for a great yarn selection at reasonable prices with good service and have never ordered yarn on-line before.
thank you!!

:-)

These are the online stores that I return to time and time again:

Yarnzilla Yarnzilla---fabulous selections, discount at various levels of total money spent, terrific service, quick turnaround and a flat shipping rate

Woodland Wool Works --terrific selection of needles, fast shipping, supports local/regional suppliers of yarn kind of fun to see and knit a kit from Oregon when you live in the midwest. Woodland Woolworks - Complete suppliers for Knitters, Spinners and Weavers

Angelika's Yarn Store--just ordered recently for the first time. Really fast service. Yarn, Knitting Needles, Crochet Hooks and Patterns

Great sales:
Little Knits your source for quality yarn and knitting supplies!

Sock yarn: Two favorites:The Loopy Ewe and Simply Socks Yarn Company- Sock yarn, needles, patterns and free shipping!

elann.com has their own well-priced private label yarns (like KnitPicks), plus terrific prices on a wide variety of high-quality yarns, many of them European. Loads of free patterns. Good prices on Addi needles. Prompt, intelligent service. Sign up for their monthly updates on new yarn arrivals.

sandrasingh.com has a brilliant selection of boutique yarns (eg, Lorna's Laces, Cherry Tree Hill, Karabella, Malabrigo). Sandra also seeks out interesting patterns from new designers and offers lots of good free patterns as well. Her site also features hard-to-find needles and beautiful knitting bags. Nice service.

Joann.com has good prices, good sales, and frequently free shipping coupons. After you spend $35, three times, you get free shipping on $10 orders for the rest of the year. I order from them at least once a week. Never had a problem. I also like Kpixie and Knitpicks.

Thanks for posting this! I just bought yarn to make my sister the Central Park Hoodie for $35! And, that includes the cost of shipping!!

I spent nearly $90 on the yarn for my CPH, and I thought I got a great deal!

I kept reading references to the Central Park Hoodie. Curiosity got the better of me and I Googled it. Wow... no wonder it's so popular! Add another project to Ravelry.

Hmm... how will I explain this additional stash enhancement to my dearest?
