Great Yarn Shacks with Great Prices


LITTLE KNITS - http://www.littleknits.com/index.php The best place ever for great discounts by the bag or ball.  This is by far one of my FAVORITE YARN STORES. 
        
Colourmart.com - In the UK, but shipping is included in prices and any taxes or surcharges so this is a GREAT DEAL.  High end coned yarn at reasonable prices.  I constantly buy all my Merino and Merino/Cashmere from them on CONES!  ALL YARN IS ON CONES which is perfect for machine knitting.  They also have a Bargain Area with Yarn on 1KG CONES which is about 2.2 lbs for an even deeper discount.  This is by far one of my FAVORITE YARN STORES.  

Crystal Palace - at http://www.straw.com/index.html has very cool yarn.

DBNY  Yarn specializes in discontinued yarn from leading manufacturers: http://www.discontinuedbrandnameyarn.com/shop/

Need some SARI SILK YARN?  http://knitting-yarn-store.com/silk.htm


SILK from INDIA: 
http://www.silkindian.com/

PRISM YARNS is the place to shop: http://www.prismyarn.com  The yarn is very different and I use it for embellishments, purses, on collars and cuffs or tops.

Do not know if you have ever heard of SMILEYS YARNS,  in New Jersey - but they have closeouts and sales on yarns all the time, you can get discounts of up to 90% off, NO KIDDING!!   www.smileysyarns.com

Some of the best SARI SILK you can get is at SUNMOON TRADING COMPANY and they also have Banana Yarn, Nettle, Hemp, Wool and much more. 

NUMEI has yarn by the bag at great prices, but watch the weight when purchasing, some of the packets and/or balls can get a little light.

YARNBOW has discounts on current yarn, still a little pricy but you do get quality and you can find just about anything there.

YARNIA: Yarnia is the only yarn shop where you can design your very own custom blend of yarn, and buy it by the pound.  They specialize in budget-friendly, custom knitting and weaving yarn on cones.  Customers can buy their house blends of yarn, which are already wound up in standard knitting and crochet weights, or create their own custom yarn with their Custom Yarn Creator.  Online Store:  http://onlineshop.yarniapdx.com.

                   KNITTING MAGAZINES

                                             

                               
            A SHOUT OUT TO COUNTRY KNITTING OF MAIN


This brave soul has decided to publish her very own knitting machine magazine, which is a HUGE undertaking, but sorely needed as there is basically only ONE "Knitting Machine" Magazine currently being published, but it costs over $100!  So, I personally would like to thank Linda for her efforts in publishing not only a great magazine for Machine Knitters, but also at an affordable price!

Country Knitting of Main News and Views is a knitting machine magazine that is currently in production by Country Knitting of Main.  Contact Linda for a subscription at this email: oth98@hotmail.com or go to her website.  The price of a subscription is: $37.99 in USA, $38.99 in Canada, $45.99 for International subscribers.  In England you can contact their distributor Linda Irwin directly at sales@jigsawknits.co.uk

                                          _______________________________

Below are a list of knitting magazines.  While almost all of them are for hand knitters it is not that hard to translate hand knitting into machine knitting.  You can purchase a booklet called "Translating Hand Knitting to Machine Knitting" by Tricia Shaffer from the Knit Knack Shop for about $20 but I have seen this regularly sold for around $12.
