WELL SAID ROMI!! ・・・
Hi! I’m wearing my cropped Morinne sweater in the first picture. ♥️ It’s taken longer to release than anticipated, and I want you to know why. My sample is in Rowan Kid Classic from stash, but I’ve decided to switch yarns due to recent events.
A couple months ago, a shawl on the Rowan IG grid jumped out as an exact copy of a tablecloth by Marianne Kinzel (2nd picture) just cut in half. I was shocked, but assumed they didn’t know, and so wanted to give them a heads up to correct a situation I thought would be embarrassing. I wrote numerous times and finally got a response. The short wrap-up is: they don’t have a problem with their designer appropriating someone else’s work, but they made it clear I was annoying them by pressing the point. To synopsize our convo, I’ve included the last letter from Rowan to me and my last to them (sans names) in the pictures above. Upon this posting, the (light green) shawl is still up in their feed, and is still attributed to their designer.
To be clear, what they did is completely legal. It is only the expression of a design (words, charts, drawings) that can be copyrighted. However, IMHO, it is completely unethical to put your name on someone else’s design, and I have a huge problem with the fact that Rowan has no problem with it. As designers, we do take inspiration from each other, but it isn’t true that knitwear designers regularly copy whole designs from one another like this, even when the original designer is deceased. Everything about this episode has left me feeling down and discouraged. So I will be doing the only thing in my power: putting even more effort into using products from companies whose business practices I feel I can support. Be well, everyone! ♥️
Of course, my youngest granddaughter's baptism dress will have antique lace! #sewing #grandkids #beautyinthedetails

This was actually created by @project_stopshop to talk about how ridiculous it is that wearing clothes once or twice is considered the norm! Clothes should last a decade, or 2, or 3!
Everyday, at least once if not more! These two goofballs!
The weather has been a blessing so far on this trip!
First garden designed for the vision impaired! #brooklynbotanicalgarden

This beautiful breath of Spring-in-a-skein arrived at my doorstep this week from @lgfsuris. It's everything I look for in a yarn - rustic and Earthy, soft and painterly. I feel like it's the perfect shade to transition my wardrobe into Spring, and the 50% Suri Alpaca, 50% wool content feels so luxurious to the touch! .
