i have never been to this store myself but i hear that Romni Wools on queen street is quite impressive (apparently it's got two floors - i'll probably be making a visit this weekend as well!)

although it might not be within your budget, lettuce knit in kensington market is worth checking out. if cheap yarn is what you're looking for though, i'd suggest michael's or if you're not knitting anything big, value village sometimes has bags of mixed yarns for very cheap.

hope that helps!

I visited Romni Wools for the first time this week (a fellow craftster let me drag them there while hanging out).  Yes, they have TONS of yarn but the prices don't seem low.  It's not that I found them to be unreasonably expensive, rather their prices were pretty much on par with other yarn shops.  They may have bargains but I didn't have the time to really go through their entire inventory since my friend, who's not a knitter and doesn't understand the "yarn shopping experience", was utterly bored and made it a quicker stop than I would have on my own.

I've been to Lettuce Knit too.  I do find their stuff a bit more expensive and the store is also very, very small.  I managed to spend a lot of time there but honestly, I've seen bigger walk-in closets.  Despite that, they manage to stock some incredibly beautiful yarn.

I don't live in Toronto though, about 1.5 hours outside of it so I don't know of any discount yarn places, only the regular stores.

Head to the basement at Romni Wools.  Upstairs is purely for inspiration, not for us on a budget.

Everything in the basement is on cones - pick what you like, go upstairs  - they weigh it and work out the cost per lb.  I knit an afghan for $25 with 100% wool. 

Knitomatic at 1378 Bathurst  St. has a wide selection at all price points.

Happy shopping!
