I couldn't resist the thought of some lovely, plump, squishy, gorgeous Madelinetosh Sock yarn! It feels wonderful to knit with, and it feels like a luxury treatment for your feet when you wear them. Ah! I just simply cannot resist.
Too bad that I couldn't find the kind of colour I wanted, at least not for a reduced price. But then there were two websites that had some colourways that weren't too bad, at a price that was lower than normal... You guessed it: I bought both!

You guessed it: another skein of Madelinetosh Sock yarn!
This one in Silver Fox, that I had won in an ebay auction that I'd half forgotten about by the time I won it (bad knitter, bad, bad, bad knitter!):
I saw these and couldn't resist:

This one was a bit of a mistake. The photo and mention of silk made me think that this is shiny yarn. But that's silly, since when is silk always shiny?

It is a good quality knitting yarn that's lovely and soft. I got this from the Knitting Shop. I am thinking of making another crescent shaped shawl with this but not yet. Once I do, I'm sure that the shawl will be extremely useful.
But why oh why oh why did I buy so much new yarn?
This is terrible.
