Hi everyone,

I hope this hasn't been covered--if it has my librarian skills are failing me now.

Often I will become motivated by a post in the Completed Projects Knitting section and will knit the same exact project as someone else. Is it better etiquette to post my version in the same thread or would it be better to create a new thread for the same finished project?

I don't want to hijack someone else's thread, but I don't want to be making new threads left and right of the same project.

Any tips/opinions/rules would be appreciated!

Usually if I were to do a similar thing, I would create my own thread but in the beginning post something like "Inspired by (post a link to their thread)" or something like that, to give them credit.
I don't tend to tack onto another thread unless it's one of those really large ones that are 10+ pages of everyone else doing it (coinpurses, etc.)

Getting back into crafting! Follow along with me on my blog and see what I come up with! Smiley
