Some new spring yarns

Spring must be coming, because the spring yarns are starting to show up!  It's always such fun to see the new yarns.  I love meeting with the yarn reps twice a year to see what the various companies are bringing out.  Course, it's really hard not to want to buy ALL of them, so restraint must be shown.  Rats. 

Rowan is bringing out a recycled yarn in their Purelife group, called Revive.  It's tweedy and wonderful! 
There are 8 colors - some rather earth-tone ones:
And some brighter shades:
And here's a close-up of the purple shade: 
I think this will be on my needles before too long!  
And the other yarn is a sock yarn from Regia, called Hand-dye Effects.  

Pretty fun stuff!
