How very gracious of you, considering all the hub-bub.


Wow, that's.... just wow. People never cease to amaze me, both the good and the bad. If you need a hand with the editing or would like a test knitter (for free, without complaints, even!!), drop me a line. I've not designed *that* many patterns, but I could help you tweak things a bit if necessary. (Note: I didn't get your original pattern, btw, so if you take me up on my offer, could you email it to me?)


I think you should charge for it this time around!!


You are a gem!


i usually don't comment (i'm a lurker), but i just had to say i am sorry that you have had so much grief over this. i agree with all the above posters- you are gracious, patient and a gem. And, maybe you should consider charging for it after doing so much work on it.
there are always a few rotten apples.


julia, I'm so sorry to hear people have been so unkind. I like to think we have this happy smiley community of knitters, but every now & then something like this happens that makes me realize we do not.


Here is another lurker to say WTH --- it was free folks! get over yourself! This nice knitter shared and you complained. I never understand how people can be so mean when someone has been kind to them. Even though I may never, ever knit that cute hat, I appreciate each and every one of you that have the creative gene and share it with us.


How annoying that you would have gotten any grief for a free pattern. I started reading your blog several years ago, and I wished so badly that I had an excuse to knit your cute little hats, but my teenage children probably wouldn't have appreciated me knitting them a pirate hat. You're great, and I agree with a few other commenters that you should just charge this time!


Another Lurker chiming in. You are a very good person, and you should charge this time, if just to compensate for the previous aggravation. (And if (when) people complain, post a couple of these comments!


Unfortunately I'm not surprised- there's plenty of that going around on Rav. A short while ago Twist was ripped a new one over a few tech edit issues by some miserable people. I'm sorry people have been nasty to you too.

I read this in complete amazement, and apparently, after reading the comments I realize I am not alone. Re-write the pattern and charge 30.00 for the new pattern! That will get the tongues wagging even more, but some apparently deserve it. I tend to think of knitters as a warm bunch of helpful people and then get cautioned by stories like this. I truly hope you have a nice weekend!

Maybe you could just redirect the complainers to your dinosaur sweater pattern instead -- that should keep them busy for a while.
