Where To Buy Discount Yarn?
Are there any web sites or stores that sell yarn at discount rates? Sometimes I don't really care about dye lot, etc and it would be nice to know where to go for that.

Discount Yarn Sales is a great place to get yarn for cheap.

Knit Picks is a favorite of mine and of many on this fourm.

Elann also has some fabulous cheap yarn!

Have you tried recycling yarn from secondhand sweaters? I've found loads of lovely yarn for just a dollar or two that way. Sometimes thrift stores have yarn, too.

My mom likes Smiley's (www.smileys.com). The only downside is that you have to order $40 at a time, and with their prices that can be difficult!

Thanks! I thought of recycling from sweaters in thrift stores, but I thought after washed a few times doesn't it become like felting and won't come apart? Or do you mean look for the brand new sweaters only?

Cuuuuuuuute pups Sara! They're fun dogs!

Thanks, I'll check out Smiley's too.

That's actually http://www.smileysyarns.com/

And I'd just like to say...I'm so angry with all YOU for starting this thread (that's coming from the yarn junkie in me!)
