okay, besides ebay...
...where do you people buy/get/obtain your yarn? I'm so yarn store deprived here in the boondocks of San Bernardino, CA...the nearest one is in Long Beach, an hour and twenty minutes away.

Argh!!! I need a good online yarn store. I've been to Knitpicks and am waiting for their catalog (I signed up 3 times for the darned thing and still nothing!) but I kinda want some "brand name" stuff. Not that I'm a yarn snob, but a lot of these free patterns call for Noro Kureyon and Lopi and Cascade and I wanna play with these...

Of course, cheaper is always better.

yarn.com (WEBS) has good name brand stuff. I also think elann is a little hit and miss, but you can find stuff there. WEBS is my favorite so far. They have Art Yarns and Malabrigo, which I'm buying. At VERY competative prices.

Good luck!

Ram Wools, which is also one of my LYSs, has a great mail order catalogue and does online sales. If I'm too tired to try and fall asleep doing one of my puzzle books, I'll curl up with my catalogue!

I absolutely LOVE Kaliedoscope yarns . I've ordered from them several times and they have fabulous customer service and even their basic shipping it really fast. I've ordered from there on a Thursday and I had my order in hand on Monday. They have a huge selection of yarns.

However, when I want Noro, I order from Wool Needle Work They've got great prices esp on Kureyon.

The desert ones are way too far (87 miles according to Mapquest), but the San Bernardino place is doable at only 18 miles from my doorstep. Thanks so much...will maybe pack up the kids for a road trip this weekend. :D
