Hi to everyone who left me a comment on the rainbow socks! I am working my way through the list to visit each blog and offer some support in return! 24 comments! Wow! This Knit Pligg thing is amazing!
For those who asked, the pattern is by Strickwear Designs, it is called "Rainbow socks" and the only place I can find it is at Yarns by Design online shop. (I emailed Get Knitted to ask if they would be stocking it in the UK and they said.... nothing. I have had this problem before - they seem to be too busy to answer customer emails.)
Hey - have you seen Kirsty's shop has reopened? Woo hoo! And sold out of Bronzed Pink in the twinkling of an eye - boo hoo!
I was NOT one of the lucky ones. I had a bad experience at the weekend - my credit card details were being used without my knowledge. Luckily my bank realised that I left London almost 3 years ago, and didn't authorise the transactions... but they also refused my attempts to buy wool through Paypal - they thought "Loopy Ewe" sounded suspicious! So they saved me from myself!
Boring warning: take care how you use your credit card online! I am almost certain I know where my details were stolen - a small site selling specialist black hair products in the UK. As I was putting in my details I noticed a strange message in pink which appeared to be addressed to the website owner, saying something like "I can write code to here". I contacted the website owner at the time and she assured me her site was safe... but she would wouldn't she? I mean, if you leave your web design to someone else, you trust them to get it right, don't you?
So I am now without a credit card. Ah well - plenty in the stash! Wool? Who needs more of the stuff?! (ME ME ME!!!)
