Nothing To Lose

I'm not a designer. I'm not planning to become one. BUT I AM a knitter and I do USE patterns, so I think I should voice this in some way.

Annie is a megapower in Knitting Design and she still gets treated like crap. So imagine what I would feel if I were to try and design to publish. Less than crap. No, that's not right. It's not right that if I did get my stuff into a major mag that they could rape the profits of unknown hours of work and determination and kick back a dime for every three dollars they make. NO. That's not right.

No. That's not right.


And now you can go read what she's said because I'm just a nobody in this, but it will affect my penchant to purchase Vogue mags from now on. Did you hear that Vogue? I hope so. Knitters shouldn't be f-ed with. Just in case you DIDN'T know that.
