View Full Version : I'm on a yarn diet now :-)

Because today I received a little parcel with a little yarn....8 lbs :cheering:

The yarns are cotton/polyamide blends and they are very very soft :inlove:
The black yarn wants to become a cardigan for me (and something else because I don't need 2 lbs for a cardigan) and with the green, orange and purple yarn I will knit some bathmats.....many bathmats I'm afraid :lol:

My husband has asked me if I want to knit bathmats for the whole town :rofling:

One day ebay will ruin me :rollseyes:

Wow, great find! Ebay will eventually ruin us all ;-)

So you've gained 8lbs. Big deal. I say good for you!!!!:cheering::cheering::cheering: Non-knitters just don't understand. I've been really good but I think I've got a binge coming in my near future. I think I'd like to get a super-size of some Mmmmmmmmmalabrigo and maybe even some beautiful silky Artyarn. Oh and I'd like to have a heaping portion of baby alpaca with a side of Muench's Touch Me. Mmmmmmmmmm so yummy!!!! Oh man, my mouth is watering. :drool: :drool: :drool:

Yes, only knitters can understand the ecstasy of buying yarn :lol:

Yarn diet: when I'm on a diet I'm supposed to eat no chocolate or cakes or something like that.

And when I'm on a yarn diet I'm supposed to buy no more yarn....at least for some time :mrgreen:

I can never stay on my yarn diets. Doc keeps saying I need more fiber!

I'm on a "DH enforced" yarn diet. :cry: I spent a whole whopping $40 on yarn for a project and then decided not to make it. Now I can have no more yarn until I've used all I have. I'll have to go back into negotiations to see if this includes my huge tub of leftovers..... I hope NOT!!!! :tap:

I love it!!!

Actually I find yarn HELPS me with my diet, as long as I'm knitting in front of the TV at night I'm not munching!!!!!!!
