First up is some raspberry from Knitabulous. This one is bright, very bright. It's her supersoft merino sock yarn. I've used this yarn in a shawl before and it's turned out well. I have no plans for it yet. However, I often find that when I buy new yarn without a particular plan for it, as I let it simmer in the back of my mind, the right project for it emerges. I shall let this one simmer, I think.
Yarnivorous in a destash sale. It took only a day in the post from Victoria to Sydney. That's a lot quicker than it would have been from USA. I've never been particularly impressed by the speed of their postal service, although my son often buys from eBay there and seems to have no problem. Amazon purchases take weeks to get here.
Both the Socks that ROck skeins are medium weight. They are soft and feel as if they will be pleasant to knit and warm to wear.
