Because for some reason Blogger won't let me comment on my own blog post (censorship!), just wanted to update that I bought the kit I was moaning about. Because I am grumpy and ill this week and didn't want to be mean to the shop, and because Partner is also ill (Partner is always grumpy though) and I have been ferrying him about, I did it from his office. I finally managed to unearth a browser the site would work on - they really do have some very pretty kits when you can see them! - and I ordered it.
Obviously the minute I had ordered it online they emailed me and said I was more than welcome to ring them or order by email...
And also, as everything about this kit is doomed, the postman tried to deliver it when I was out, and he was not the normal postman, because our normal postman always hides parcels in the hedge. So I have got to pick it up from the sorting office. Which I will do on Monday.
But... we nearly have emotional closure on this kit! It is nearly in my hands! And I am feeling much better about it now, so thank you for all your kind comments and I will be able to show you the Kit Of Bad Karma when it arrives (at which point it will be absolutely obvious where I bought it and you will have to pretend you did not read my moaning). Rather ironically, the pattern I am going to knit with it is a pattern which, through no fault at all of the designer, whose designs are great (and it is a good pattern), got itself involved with an event with quite a bit of bad karma too. How strange is this? Anyway. I shall pick up the kit, I will knit it, it will be lovely, we will get some better karma flowing through the medium of stranded knitting!
(PS quick question. We have a very lively black squirrel O_O. Does anyone else have a black squirrel? I thought they only came in red and grey).
