Mim's Knitting Frenzy

Make sure you take the time to read though Chrissy's post about Copyright and Fair Use. She also makes good points about why pdf patterns SHOULD be more expensive than paper patterns. It's something we've been discussing in depth on the KnitDesign yahoo list. If you are so talented, why not make a button for this cause so we can start a blog campaign similar to the Bandwidth Theft campaign.

Have a lovely weekend. Mine will be filled with a lot of chores hopefully including steam cleaning my carpets and doing some laundry. I also need to make some more books, so look for those next week.
