Knitting Community

One advantage your LYS has always had over is ease of browsing. Just walk in the door and your eyes scan all the different colors they have to offer. Maybe one or two jumps out and catches your eye. Maybe you're looking for that perfect shade of blue to compliment your nieces bright blue eyes or a funky purple that will match your favorite winter parka.

In person, its easy to spot those colors, but online, you're looking for a Palette Silver needle in a Swish Worsted Gold haystack.

No more! We dug through our countless skeins of yarn and grouped them all by color for your browsing convenience. On the left-hand side of our Yarn pages, you'll see a "Yarn Color" drop-down displaying every color of the rainbow plus grays, blacks, browns, multis and more!

Underneath each color you'll find the weight, fiber content, and price along with a link to more colors in that yarn family.

And remember - you can click on each color to view a full color image and color description and drag each color in your window to compare.

The biggest problem I have in ordering KP yarn is that the color, as seen on my monitor, is NOT what I get when the yarn comes. I invest in color cards to compensate, but when you add colors, the cards are obsolete. So I have to invest again. And, try as I will, the color cards sometimes grow legs and walk away! I do not have the same problem in ordering from e****.com. Can you work on that? It would be the biggest improvement I can imagine. Thanks!

Great feature! I was trying to put together 2 colors for another Pyrifera scarf and wanted to put different lace yarns together like you all had done in the shawl. I will have a much easier time doing that now! This is my first lace project and I want to concentrate on lace for awhile -- it doesn't have to fit! -- but am still a bit scared to try the shawl. Thanks again, and I love this site...

Brett, thanks for that feature. - Yeah, I know, I can't order from here, but it's making it easy to choose the yarn and colour and then go and see where I get it in the UK.
Like Susan said: Thanks for your efforts and the thoughts about how to make everything work even better. :)

Brett: Now, if we could just run our fingers through it! Wait! We can. All we have to do is go to where we keep our stash! Thanks for all your hard work! I think this is the greatest website ever, and it still keeps getting better. (The fact that it's yarn-oriented has nothing [much] to do with it!) --P

Lately I have actually pulled up several to compare to get he color matches that I want. These features are fantastic. Not as good as walking into a KP LYS would be but as close as we can get. We appreciate your efforts. --S
