I don't have many LYS's in my area. Does anyone know any good yarn/ knitting supply websites that I can order stuff from?

I've started ordering from www. yarns.com because they have a great discount.   (I don't know if that will become a link, but when you get to that site, just look at the "Webs" yarn section and you'll see the discount information at the top.)  The selection is great, but I admit that I usually have to go to a yarn store to "feel" the yarn before I really buy it...then I get impulsive and just buy it at the LYS.

I really like http://www.theknittinggarden.com and http://www.yarnmarket.com

I just ordered a bunch of Rowan Yarn from yarnmarket and I got it today.  I was so thankful that when I sunk my fingers in it they smiled.  

How much time have you spent in your local lys'?  Have you talked to them?  I moved away from my fav lys and was bummed when I thought there weren't any good lys' in my area.  I can't buy rowan but other then that I love the two in my area.  The advantage is that the yarn is cheaper then in Seattle, which is an hours drive, and the ladies know there stuff.  Sometimes they can order you stuff too. Blah blah blah...support local businesses if you can.

another one is www.yarnexpress.com

They have discounted or discontinued yarns at a cheaper price.

When God made the arse, he didn't say, 'Hey, it's just your basic hinge, let's knock off early.' He said, 'Behold ye angels, I have created the arse. Throughout the ages to come, men and women shall grab hold of these, and shout my name!

http://www.elann.com - Good yarns at a good discounted rate.  Whenever someone asks, I always recommend them.  They don't have all the really neat yarns since they mostly sell discontinued colours and the like but their service is fast and i'm pleased with the yarn i get from them.
