fingering weight yarn
Is there ANY place to buy fingering weight yarn that ISN'T pink,blue or yellow? Baby colors? I want some more vibrant colors but in that weight. I haven't found any. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could try or Little Knits tends to have a lot of really good deals. I've had great experiences with both. Hope this helps.

For online shopping both Knitpicks and WEBS have non-baby colors in fingering weight yarns, And both sites you can sort your search by weight so all the fingering weights come up.

I just ordered 4 skeins of fingering weight from Knitpicks, 2 purple and 2 in a light blue/green heather. They have 47 colors in the Palette series which is 100% Peruvian wool.

check out -- she has loads of fingering weight yarn and I think she is getting ready for another sale. Her website is well done and her blog is entertaining. She runs lots of contests (I haven't won one yet though) and your yarn will arrive wrapped in tissue with little gifts and a hand written note.

If you have a LYS near you, that's a good place to go for fingering weight, non-pastel baby color type yarn. As mentioned before, Knitpicks is also a good place to go, too. Anywhere you can get sock yarn is a good bet.
