Best online shopping?
I liked the way Lion Brand's site let me get a kit of everything I needed for my project - from needles to the pattern and the right amount of yarn. But I'm not crazy about anything they're offering right now.
Anyone have any suggestions for online shopping for all-inclusive kits like this?

I second little knits- my box o' goodness came today.....

Kits can be limiting- once you like a yarn or a pattern, you can build it yourself with yarn you actually like!

some independent yarn shops also put togehter nice kits in the store. it depends on the type of object you really want to make. I've seen lots of scarf kits, but I am not so into making scarves.

If you can look at knitting magazines (like at the library or from a book store) they have lots of ads with different Yarn shops and their options. several feature kits, like this one:
http://www.onefineyarn.com/Merchant2...gory_Code=KITS

knitpicks will tell you what you need for any of their projects, even if they don't sell it specifically in a kit. and they have great yarn.

you may have to search and click around... and then you can search the company name here to see if people liked it...
