Where o Where can I buy cheap yarn (price)

Greetings,


Not to knock yarn shops (I absoloutely love Lionsbrand) its starting to get a bit expensive though. Does anyone know where I can buy some good yarn for less? I'm not crazy about cashmere, but moreso jiffy, vannah's, woolease thick and quick, homespun, etc.



thanks!

Hi Calista,

If your budget is tight, I would try:
a) Save-a-thon - they have two shops. One is on Caton and Flatbush Ave. The other is near Kings Plaza.
b) Smiley's yarn - in queens on the corner or Woodhaven blvd and Jamaica Avenue. Plus, they have sales every month.

Also, try www.knitpicks.com if you don't mind buying your yarn online.
