When is a Yarn Diet Broken

Today I travelled up to Gordon with 1funkyknitwit to meet up with the Gordon knitters. A small but friendly turn out and on the return we stopped into Mosman Needlecraft.

The Madelinetosh Tosh Sock was too tempting especially in the Flashdance colourway in person. I have been watching this colourway start to appear with great envy.

In addition they had some Needlefood (an independent dyer who has closed up the business) Wool-Silk in Lavender.

I don't count discontinued yarns - they are an acceptable exception to the year of knitting from Stash so the Needlefood is ok. The Madelinetosh is quite questionable though. Oh well nobody is perfect.

So glad I could help aid your lack of self, but we all know you weren't alone on your shopping spree, don't we ? ! ;D
