Yarnish Temptations

I was feeling so virtuous by signing up for Tour-de-Sock. I made a donation to Doctors Without Borders. I had the opportunity to use up six stashed yarns. I had the opportunity to use up stashed beads, too. Then I took a look at the sponsors and their yarns. I was able to talk myself out of most of them. The exception this time was a self-striping that's part solid pink, part multicolored speckled. One of the bases was MCN, which I love. TdS sponsors all have coupons, so you know I had to order it.

I was looking at ads on Ravelry and had to find out what Yarnbox was about. It turns out it is a yarn club type thing, only you get to express a lot of preferences up front. There are also a lot of different choices in how many shipments you get. I got really interested in finding out more and hit a dead end. They are subscribed up for the moment. I wasn't able to give in to temptation yet, but expect to hear back from them at some point.
