Absolutely gutted I tell you.
Pretty nice, eh?
That's not the gutted part.
I'm crushed because I've been thinking about a design for something very similar to this for weeks now. Weeks, I tell you. WEEKS!
My idea was more along the lines of something in a lighter Manos silk yarn, or maybe the wool blend weight...but seriously I'm really disappointed. I was waiting to get some other things off my list.
Thing is, if I pursued my idea now I'd really feel like I was copying the Riverbanks pattern in some way, or at the very least that it was no longer an original idea.
Still, I'd like to make mine anyway and see how it compares.
As I've said before, in similar circumstances. She who hesitates is lost!
All kudos to the designer of course. It's lovely.
