Ebay will be my downfall

I know, I said it many times, but I really should stay away from Ebay. It's evil!
I have this habit of watching items I would like to buy, but don't have the money for. I'm just curious how much the winning bid will be. Well, not too long ago I watched some colinette yarn and 5 minutes before the auction ended it was 6,5€. Nobody should get that beautiful yarn for so less money, I thought. So I bid on it quite confident the other bidder had already entered more...well, (s)he didn't and I won the auction of 7 hanks of Fandango from colinette for 11,96€ including shipping!!!
There are 3 different colorways, 4 hanks of Velvet Bronze, 2 hanks of summer berries and 1 hank of velvet plum. After cuddling it extensively and some google search I decided that the 4 hanks will become a sweater/cardigan of some sort and the others a scarf and/or pillow.
And now, feast your eyes on this:

Oh my God what a bargain! I do exactly the same thing with Ebay though and this week am expecting some Poole pottery (through the post! - how insane can you be?) because I didn't believe that my low bid would win.....there's a lesson in here somewhere, but I do think you got a great deal with that Colinette
