I'm one that likes to see and feel the yarn in person before I buy, but I wanted some Lorna's Laces and the LYS price was just more than I wanted to pay, so I got it from E-Bay. Since then I've ordered from Knit Picks, bought some from the Swap section on this forum, and several other online places. The only one that I was disappointed in was the Vinca sock yarn that I bought, and of course, I had to buy a LOT since it was such a good buy! But, I would say that I've had pretty good luck with online yarn, and saved a TON of money!

Knit picks, Elann and WEBS rock my world. Ive also bought from patternworks and Little knits. Oh yeah and from some sellers on eBay but only if recommended by someone else.

Thanks everyone for your great replies...
The yarn I bot was from Ebay and I bot lots of it of the same colourway in hopes of being able to knit something larger than a baby sweater...
I'm pretty excited... but time will tell.
So far I haven't been notified if the yarn is on it's way so I think I'll make an enquiry soon...
Thanks for all the imput. You, guys, are the greatest!
I am definitely going to try some of the sites mentioned as the one and only yarn store near me is quite expensive as well.

WIP... a long skinny scarf while I'm waiting for my yarn to come

My only problem with buying online is that because of shipping costs, I tend to order more than what I need.

I can buy one hank at the LYS, but it always seems to be cheaper to ship multiple skiens and hanks so I always take advantage of the shipping savings and I order too much.

I also buy 99.7% of my yarn online, from most all the places listed. LOVE ebay and check there DAILY for my favorite brands. Littleknits takes a bit longer than some but they are 3000 miles away from me so that's understandable (their customer service is great). I alos love love love WEBS,, Elan, Knitpicks and ....... oh gosh the list goes on and on.
