One Fine Yarn?
Has anyone ordered from onefineyarn.com? I was poking around on their site and found some things that I'd like to try. I'm not experienced enough with buying yarn in general to know if they have great prices, but some stuff looked pretty good -- but then I noticed that they were selling the booga bag pattern -- for $5.50, no less! So, I'm a little off-put by that. Anyone have experience with them??

For pricing
You have to do some surfing and visit a LYS to get a good idea of yarn pricing. I've never bought from them.

knitpicks.com
ellan.com
yarn.com
patternworks.com

are some good ones I have used.

I've bought from them a few times with no problems. They were very prompt in their shipping.

Their warehouse is near me so I went directly to it one time to pick something up, too.
