clever handpainted sock yarn from A swell yarn, with a an extra small skein for heels and toes! delightful, and not just for socks. The package arrived within 4 days!
My other major (in size, not in cost) purchase this week has been bamboo needles from 8season in China , I bought 2 sets of circulars (100 and 80 cm) a set of standard needles, and some stitch markers a few weeks ago, and the quality was so good that the Knit Rangers decided to do a group purchase, the prices are wholesale - but you must purchase over $30 US worth of products, yep like that was difficult! The sets of circular needles were around $10 US for 15 different sizes, and the knitting accessories are very similar to well known brands. These needles are smooth and supple, the cords are flexible plastic tube which are well fixed (mine have undergone vigourous pulling) they have the size laser printed on the needle and the sizes are correct - all up a very positive experience, and they too took less than a week to arrive.
