I like to think that I'm a pretty tolerant person.. and I hoped that I would never have to post something like this..
As many of you know, I post up a few free patterns. I do this because back when I was starting out, many people were generous enough to do the same for me. The only two things I've requested though, was for people to credit me and for them to not sell the finished product. I'm very picky about shaping so it takes me hours and hours to figure out the exact shape and proportions that I want. I have taken things apart and re-made pieces countless times to get it as close to perfect as I possibly can. And to top that off, I absolutely hate typing up patterns. It's extremely tedious when I can easily decipher the numbers I have, the way they are. I remember that I love you guys though, so I suck it up and type it up.
So when someone tells me, that "legally", they can sell things made from my patterns if they want, it's like a punch to the stomach. Yes, I know I can't stop you from selling things made from my patterns and yes, I know that legally
you can. However, I gain nothing from posting patterns. I am relying solely on people's honesty to respect the two little things I've requested.
It's a little discouraging to have to deal with these kind of people, but I know that the majority of you are not like that. Know that I
appreciate that you
appreciate the patterns I have posted. It always puts a smile on my face when I get to see photos of what has been made from my patterns
So onward we go! Let us continue to populate the world with yarn creations!
