Thank you all for sharing your favorites, because I am pretty new to the joys of wool, it was only a year ago I was brave enough to use a wool blend to see if I was allergic or not.

I'm sitting this swap out, but I wanted to say thanks to everyone who posted their favorite yarn sites. I about fell over when I realized how much beautiful yarn is out there waiting for me! :P

Just a tip for anyone who gets a Canadian partner :wink , Elann is a Canadian company and shipping is very reasonable.

You got that, too?? I was just whining about it, lol!! The good news is that shipping is only $3.29 on orders less than $40... Still very reasonable...

This is the free shipping code for any size order, doesn't have to be a $40 minimum. I don't know how long it'll be good for, but once you place items in your cart, it automatically gives you the free shipping in the shipping box.

Since I've always had trouble keeping my total to under $40 with all of my previous orders with Knit Picks, I don't think I'll be worrying too much about the change. :lol They are still a good deal in my book, and their yarn is fantastic! I especially :manyheart their laceweight yarns, though I'm hoping to stock up on some of the heavier stuff for planned projects soon. They have yet to disappoint me, including with shipping times, which have been lightning fast for me! :hook

Only thing missing to make my life complete is a yarn swift... :c9

[well that's wierd! I put up what I thought was the daydreaming smilie and got the "you've made my day" smilie instead - is that an error? Oh well.]

I am trying to join (if it isn't too late) but my emails to you Rebecca keep bouncing. Hopefully this one will come through.

I have been laying pretty low lately (as that's how I have been feeling) but I GOTTA try to at least bounce back for the new year.
