11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What to do with people selling stuff based on my free pattern? on: December 13, 2010 03:15:20 PM
Last year I made a pattern for some traditional mittens based on a old pattern my granny used to knit. Its free and available on ravelry, because I think its gorgeous and what better way to honor my granny than to spread her pattern all over the globe, eh?

And now i see a lady has started selling mittens online based on the pattern.

As I see it I have three ways to go about it
1) Email her and ask her not to sell it
2) Email her and tell her I am aware that she's selling my mittens and ask her to give me credit at least
3) Just ignore it because it was bound to happen, and will surly happen again.

I'm a bit ambivalent about 1. Because knitting a pair of stranded mittens is work-intensive and the knitting itself is absolutely worth the price. And the idea was to spread the pattern. But I feel like its rude nonetheless.

As for number 2, it would feel a bit strange, her linking from her shop to my blog (where the pattern is)? And Ive never been overly concerned about credit, not really...

And 3 - when I put it up on ravelry I know it could happen - because when you put something up on the internet you dont have control, not really. You can write disclaimers all you want, you still dont have control and its just silly imagining you have. If Id want control I wouldnt have put it up on ravelry. 

So... anyone have any thoughts? What would you do? Im not to sure how to go about it, its just strange.

Thanks everybody for the kind words!

The first piece of knitting I did didn't fit me at all so I ripped the whole thing out and now I'm working on a blanket that's just kind of a "whenever I'm bored" project because I'm truly a crocheter at heart.

Lol, Im crocheting a blanket of granny squares whenever Im bored or stuck for what to knit next, cause they look cool but Im really a knitter at heart. Ive spent six months on 100 squares - not very productive Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

All of these are so awesome! I love the patterns, and I've always wanted to try that type of knitting but am scared too!  Embarrassed I especially love the purple and gray mittens, so pretty! Did you make all these patterns up yourself (other than the moose one)? Amazing!  Grin

There is nothing to be scared of! Even tho I would recomend starting with something a bit simpler to get the hang of two strands to start with  Wink

Everything else has pattern: Both the traditional patters are this one. Here are the duckies. My mittern pattern. And the last is a kinda modefied Selbudeath.

Wow, its supercool being fetured! Cheesy

Everyone can find the moose-chart on ravelry here to make their own. Its awesome, but a bit annoying to knit up. There is no rythem so you have to look at the chart all the time.

I usually spend a day or two on each sock.

I actually have no idea what kind of yarn I use, I have the world biggest stash of unmarked yarn. I just grab whatever seems the right weight and knit on. Im trying to get rid of it this christmas.

So, Ive started my christmas-knitting, and is so excited I need to share! Im not gonna get feedback from the intended recipients for another month or so  Cheesy Im on a sock-roll this year, I feel.

Dark gray and teal socks in a traditional pattern

Better pic of the rose-pattern. Its so pretty

Same in black and light blue. Its for my dad and way to big for me

And another one in black and white.


I love them!

And *ehm* loving moose-socks

With trees on the other side. Thise makes me giggle.

More traditional socks.

Better pic of the pattern. I really like the "diamond" under the heel.

Same pattern in white

And some mittens - from my own pattern. They are really a dark purple and light gray - not bright pink. But my green carpet messes a bit with the colors

A view of inside.

Same colors, but opposite use.

And in dark gray and pink. I love making these - they knit up so fast

More socks - in thin, soft yarn.

And what Im working on now. Its gonna be another sock. I love the pattern

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Rockabilly gorgeousness! on: October 25, 2010 02:02:06 AM
So Ive found this beautiful beautiful dress that I want to recreate for prom, and I quite cant wrap my head around the top half.

Pretty, ain't it?

There is obviously a tire around the waist and 6 pleats on top of the bust, and two small beneath, but I just cant imagine how the pattern looks... There dosnt seem to be any seams either, but I might be wrong. 

Anyone got any ideas? Smiley

I'm realizing how much I despise sewing Ami body parts together, lol. It took me 2 episodes of Bones last night to just get the head sewn on to the body! I'm trying to intersperse sewing body parts together and finish crocheting the rest so I don't get too frustrated Roll Eyes

I also hate the sewing. I ended up crotcheting one limb, sewing it to the body, crotcheting another, sewing it, and so on so I wouldnt have a mass of sewing to do in the end. It wouldve made me go mad!
