Yarns (scroll down to source other crafty enablers, and other free pattern sources)
When somebody I don't know already sees me knitting and asks about it, the next question is almost always "Where do you buy your yarn?" Well, after a few years of experimenting, I've settled on a few superfavourite places. Here they are!
Biscotte & Cie
Knitterly Things (aka Vesper Sock)
Stoddart Family Farm
Toots LeBlanc & Co.
Twisted Fiber Art
Tools and Other Supplies
Sometimes it's online retailers to the rescue, when you can't find your 3mm round needles.
I buy all my Addi needles from The Addi Needle Shop - love their superfast shipping!
And you can get practically anything else for any needlecraft from N. Jefferson Ltd., here in Canada.
There are sooo many great craft sites on the web. Here are some of my go-to favourites:
The Daily Knitter
Knitmap (this gem will find the nearest yarn store, wherever you are!)
More Free Pattern Sources
There are some great places online to source (or celebrate) tons of knitting patterns, many of them free.
Here are some I like:
