As you know, Ravelry has so much to offer, it has 3 million users. This is why it is impossible to follow everything. When you are not looking for anything particular, it is convenient to follow through your friends what's new and interestinc (friends' activities). And today I discovered that a knitter from Russia with the user name Jenny was referring to this top, had found a similar stitch pattern and made something in this spirit (without the collar). The pattern for this top will appear in the Käsitöö magazine after a while but an experienced knitter will find out in 99 cases out of 100 a similar or an identical sittch pattern and then proceed quite idependently. I left her a comment.
If you read Russian, you can reed on her blog (she refers to my Ravelry project and complains about her yarn but this is a different story). I am flattered.
Niisiis, ma ei pahanda, kui keegi "kasutab ära" minu kudumisidee jms. Kopeerimine (kasvõi osaline, aga ka täieli) on otsene või kaudne tunnustus. Mingis mõttes me kõik kopeerime kõigilt, ideed ringlevad ja see on tore.
Thus, I am never angry if someone "uses" my idea. Copying (whether selective or global) is a direct or an inderect acknowledgment. In a sense, we all copy from everywhere, ideas are circulating and this is nice.
