it was a tough week at work, and if that and my health issues weren't enough, i had quite the upset on the knitting front as well. in the midst of skimming through my blogroll, i came across this post from wendy of wendy knits - someone had alerted her to the fact that one of her free patterns was being sold by a LYS. i was musing about how so not cool that is when i received a pm from a very kind raveler, drawing my attention to copies of my bella's mittens pattern for sale on etsy. $12.95. for a free pattern. of course i immediately contacted the seller and asked her to remove the listing and refrain from selling it in the future. she's since taken it down, but not without a fair amount of snippiness. wendy still has not heard back from that LYS - they won't answer or return her calls. seriously, what is wrong with these people?!
bella's mittens #4 are done and blocking. i put them on this morning and they are so soft. i'll try to take some proper photos when they're dry tomorrow.
before i sign off - congrats to mindy, rosie, and genevieve! now go and peruse the adorable baby mohair goat photos and have a good squee!
(p.s. - i've stuck a swatch from honeycomb in my bag and will be searching for complementary yarn for the edging - thanks, everyone, for your recommendations!)
