It was interesting reading everyone’s opinions of the Twilight books. I can see that I’m not alone in my opinion that they are more or less drech, but I also see that they also appeal to lot of people. No surprise there, I guess. Thanks to everyone who weighed in with an opinion.
It’s only Tuesday, right? Seems like it should be at least Thursday . . .
But hey, look what I finished.
Finally, my poor little Waterfall Sock, knit from Crystal Palace Mini Mochi yarn. That brown blur in the lower left corner of the pix is Lucy’s ear. She was helping.
Look for the free pattern tomorrow.
Speaking of free patterns . . .
This was brought to my attention yesterday by a reader. She went in a LYS and found that they had copies of one of my free patterns in plastic page protectors with a price tag for a kit – pattern plus yarn.
I sent a polite email to the shop, worded thusly:
I was notified by someone who had been to your shop that she saw my free pattern for the Noro Transitions Hat for sale – she said there were several copies in plastic page protectors with a price tag for a kit – pattern plus yarn.
If this is true, please stop selling it immediately. The copyright notice at the bottom of my pattern (posted online at: http://media.wendyknits.net/knit/transitions.htm) clearly states:
“Not to be reproduced in any form without written permission from Wendy D. Johnson, apart from copies for personal non-commercial use.”
If you are not distributing my free pattern and the customer was mistaken, please accept my apology.
Okay, I think that is pretty clear, don’t you? Not surprisingly, I’ve not heard back from the shop.
I’m not naive enough to think this is an isolated instance. I know this sort of thing goes on a lot.
Seriously, I don’t know what is wrong with people.
“Don’t mess with my momma!”
