This is the latest addition to my household. She is called karma. Karma Kittenface McPurry. The reason being, I am part of an awesome swap group on ravelry called UKarma. The idea is, if there’s yarn you don’t want anymore, you offer it up for someone else to claim. Then in return they offer something else, and the cycle continues. Rather than a straight swap of items of similar value, this relies on people being honest and offering stuff up purely for karma, knowing that in future they will claim something else they want.

Anyway, I had to go to the post office to send off a couple of parcels to people in this group, and I noticed on the noticeboard outside there was a small sign saying ‘kittens for sale’. with a picture. and one of them was grey. Now I have wanted, no NEEDED, a grey kitten for EVER. So on seeing this sign I ran home (well, as close as i get to running) and immediately called…the kittens were still available!!! So I got in the car and went to see them, and the grey one was as cute as expected, so I brought her home with me, and she is now in my spare room being a cute little rascal. Apparently the sign had only gone up 10 mins before I got there.

On reporting back to the UKarma group that they were personally responsible for my latest acquisition, someone suggested I call her ‘karma’. So karma she is. And I love her lots.
