I am just now getting into making socks. I just bought some chroma yarn from KP. Worsted weight first then once I get the hang of making socks I will go for the sock yarns.

Try Joann's, too. They carry sock yarns for a good price, I think.

I only have one Joann's by me and they don't carry much yarn at all. I would have to order online.

I have a Jo's about five miles away (and miguel's about 3 miles.) My 2 year old is a terrorist and thus, going to a craft store frankly, stinks! I almost always shop at Jo's online instead. Be sure to check www.retailmenot.com for coupons!

JoAnn frequently has their yarn on sale and sometimes you can get free shipping. I've had trouble with their coupon codes not working right so watch out for that. I actually like LB SockEase yarn.

I stow all my yarn in these zippered vinyl project bags. I use two sizes for yarn. This yarn below is stowed in a yarn cupboard made from a kit we got at Home Depot. But, I've got just as much yarn stowed in a big wicker trunk, and more yarn stowed in my knitting room. Yeah, you guessed it...my yarn condition is SABLE. These photos were taken 4 years ago...and my DESTASH efforts have really helped! 2012 and 2013 have been my best years for knitting only from stash! As I look at these photos below, I can readily identify the bags of yarn that are knit up and out of the 'closet'! LOL






Here is a small project bag, and it's holding 14 balls of grey yarn! They're aran weight, too!
You can really cram a lot in the smallest size!
