"The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it... I can resist everything but temptation." -- Oscar Wilde

Yarn Diet, Schmarn Diet...To heck with it all! I know that there are only 9 more days 'til the end of my Yarn Diet...but, today I gave in to temptation.

Recently, I added a new eBay seller to my yarn temptation watchlist. This morning, my visit to her store was innocent enough...I just wanted to order a copy of the new Rowan mag, which I still haven't received.* Well, the offer that was featured today was just too good to resist! Not only was I able to order the magazine, but I also ordered 3 packs of Rowan cotton/blends. I got one pack of Cotton Glace, a pack of All Seasons Cotton, and a pack of Handknit DK for $100...Oh, and that includes shipping from the UK! The magazine was $20 + $10 for shipping, but is well worth the cost when you consider how much I saved on the yarn.

I'm not going to try to come up with some lame justification for making this purchase. I don't have any specific projects in mind. None of these is what I would call a favorite...Actually, I've never used any of them. The only thing I can say is that the price was right!

* This is quite a long story, that I will not go into. I don't want to flame anyone, I just want a copy of the magazine.

If the yarn doesn't arrive until the Yarn Diet is over, you havn't violated the YNBA, you've just planned ahead!
