Online shopping for knitting supplies & yarn
Good morning!
Can anyone suggest some on-line knitting sources that they would recommend? I'm getting a little bored with the selection at my local craft store chain!
I'm mostly looking for a great yarn selection at reasonable prices with good service and have never ordered yarn on-line before.
thank you!!

Yarnzilla Yarnzilla---fabulous selections, discount at various levels of total money spent, terrific service, quick turnaround and a flat shipping rate

Woodland Wool Works --terrific selection of needles, fast shipping, supports local/regional suppliers of yarn kind of fun to see and knit a kit from Oregon when you live in the midwest. Woodland Woolworks - Complete suppliers for Knitters, Spinners and Weavers

Angelika's Yarn Store--just ordered recently for the first time. Really fast service. Yarn, Knitting Needles, Crochet Hooks and Patterns

Great sales:

Loads of free patterns. Good prices on Addi needles. Prompt, intelligent service. Sign up for their monthly updates on new yarn arrivals. has a brilliant selection of boutique yarns (eg, Lorna's Laces, Cherry Tree Hill, Karabella, Malabrigo). Sandra also seeks out interesting patterns from new designers and offers lots of good free patterns as well. Her site also features hard-to-find needles and beautiful knitting bags. Nice service.

Thanked 8 Times in 7 Posts has good prices, good sales, and frequently free shipping coupons. After you spend $35, three times, you get free shipping on $10 orders for the rest of the year. I order from them at least once a week. Never had a problem. I also like Kpixie and Knitpicks.

Kaidy! I cannot believe that I did not know about Woodland Wool Works. OMGosh! I drive by them four or five times a month, going from Salem to McMinnville, the long way to see a friend, and I've see the sign for Carlton, but never ever went there.

I thought I'd been to every store in the Willamette Valley, but not so. What's wrong with me?

Has anybody mentioned Jimmy Beans?

I love their site. Everytime I go to it, I find something that is just calling out my name to be made.

I second the Knitpicks recommendation. Their prices are great and the yarn is beautiful.

And I forgot about Jimmy Beans--they have a great newsletter. In fact many of the online knitting stores have newsletters that are fun to read. They are free and full of ideas and yarn descriptions. Often there are free patterns or links to patterns that I would not have considered looking at otherwise. Just another way to have fun with your computer!!!!
