Ebay Yarn
Just curious... has anyone gotten yarn from any of the Ebay stores? I found one seller... knititems... and I LOVE some of the yarn they have. I purchased one color that I have never seen before called Lemon Ice as well as a few others. Just wondering if anyone else has had any dealings with this ebayer. To be honest, I don't think I would have purchased had it not been for the quantity of positive feedback comments he has...

Ohhh I am on pins and needles waiting for my new stash additions!!!

Hi Chel! I love ebay! I've gotten lots of yarn from them and some really nice stuff at great prices. I like to get yarn from some of the farms esp, handdyed stuff. If they have a positive feedback, that's enough for me.
Good luck and enjoy your yarn.

I definitely use the feeedback to decide whether or not to purchase from any seller. You did the right thing!

I buy (and sell) on ebay quite frequently, and have usually had positive experiences. Checking the feedback ratings is absolutely a must! You can get some really great things for really great prices on ebay!

here it is...
This is the store I was shopping from.
http://stores.ebay.com/KnitPlace-the...enameZL2QQtZkm
I did good... only spend $118.00 Tax refund? WHAT tax refund?!?


I think I got somewhere around 19000 yards of yarn in all... that should hold me ohhh about a month.

Since I don't do malls and such (mobility problems) ebay is great for me. You have to watch the price you're bidding and add in the cost of shipping and not get carried away. I bought a skein of Opal sock yarn in a 'RARE' discontinued colorway for the ridiculous sum of $25.00. But shipping was fast and I love the color and the one skein will make a pair of socks, and I couldn't find it locally, and...and... (sound like I'm trying to justify this??)
