haha - heard enough? or nothing at all? go here

Many people sympathise with Annie and just want her to get some credit. While others don't seem to get why its a seemingly important matter to some. My husband doesn't do anything with desinging but he understands how it can feel important when something is so similar to yours is published or someone is wrongly profiting off of your idea, pattern, design. It smarts. And you are the one left behind feeling crappy about something you may have been proud of in the past. Or something that you were profiting from yourself and because of this new person, you are losing business.

So these people that don't get, do they simply not care or are they trying to see how much they can get away with. One or 2 of the comments led me to believe that someone may be just as happy and proud of themselves to use an idea of someones for their own gain. I suppose that's capitalism. Not saying its right, but that's the way things seem to be these days *sigh*

Now - for a super happy note.
I got my scarf in from my KR buddy and new journaler purlewe
Its so pretty. and an Ani Difranco CD that I didnt have. :D I'm so excited. I almost want to go play in the snow just so i can wear my scarf. I took a quick pic even though I look crazy and you can't see how pretty the scarf is. Eventually I'll post a better one.

this is also what I look like without makeup ,with bedhead, and zits --- why am I getting so many zits lately????

BTW you look darling. I just wanted you to know that. (and no I am not biased)

re: pattern from scarf (from IK summer 2003)
yarn: gatsby by classic elite; 2 skeins
CO 29 stitches
work in seed stitch for 8 inches
next row: continue seed stitch for 10, bind off 9, continue seed stitch for 10
next row: continue seed stitch for 10, co 9, continue seed stitch for 10
next row: continue seed stitch until piece measures 32 inches. (if you used classic elite like I did, knit until end of 2nd ball, which is more like 34 1/2 inches, but hey! i think it looks more even when pulled through the hole)

i would love the pattern you used for mine. i PROMISE to get that pic up by the end of the weekend.

Thank you.
Thank you for the pattern. I didn't take the scarf off at all last night (its fashionable to wear scarves 24/7 right?) The more I wear it the more I think I need to buy a bunch of this yarn and make myself a sweater.

I will write out the pattern for you, I'll try to get it done this week, or maybe I'll hold the pattern hostage waiting for a photo :)
