I'm on a yarn diet now :-)
Because today I received a little parcel with a little yarn....8 lbs

The yarns are cotton/polyamide blends and they are very very soft
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

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

One day ebay will ruin me :rollseyes:

So you've gained 8lbs. Big deal. I say good for you!!!! 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.

Yes, only knitters can understand the ecstasy of buying yarn

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
