Day 27 – 30 Days of Knitting meme

How do you acquire most of yarn? Online retailers, local yarn shops, swaps, or large chain craft stores? What’s your favorite?

I prefer local yarn shops, but I can’t always get to them when they’re open, and if I’m looking for something specific, there are issues with available colors and all that jazz. However, if I’m NOT looking for something specific, well then…local yarn shops are the best. I don’t do a whole lot of buying online, but I’ve avoided making big projects out of things that are not acrylic (i.e., blankets for babies and not-me) from big box stores.

It’s just so nice to touch the pretty, pretty yarn and be seduced by the colors and the feel and get carried away by the fumes. It’s also why I love fiber festivals. Mmm, sheepy. Or alpaca-y. Fuzzy. DANCE FOR ME, YARN.
