I try to buy this at my LYS whenever possible, because it keeps them THERE (support your local independent businesses!). Occasionally, I want yarn/patterns/whatever that they don't offer, and I turn to online stores.

I'm going to make 2009 my year for shopping at Eat Sleep Knit. I bought a sweater's worth of silky Malabrigo from them during their Black Friday sale, and was delighted with their service -- AND the goodies! They run a Yarnathon -- all yardage is applied to your "distance," with some power boost yarns giving a little extra help -- and my one purchase got me a *beautiful* shawl pattern and some very helpful yarn samples, and a Yarn Lotto card which revealed a $5 store credit. The further you run, the more goodies you get -- so I'm going to concentrate my non-LYS purchases there and see how far I can go!

(And yes, I get rewarded for pimping their site, so make with the clickies!) Srsly tho, FAB. Lurve.

I'll shop there if you try out The Loopy Ewe as well. :-P

Didja know there's a sock club? I went and joined the drawing. I hope I get in--one of the yarns last year was a Wollmeise, and I'm thinking she'll do that again.
