A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

I've Been Robbed

Both kids were at camp yesterday morning and I went to the mall to run some errands. I walked into the Anthropologie store and the first thing I saw was this.

Okay, it wasn't this. This is Rosy from Debbie Bliss's Cotton Angora book. But it was an exact copy of Rosy. I mean exact. I just finished the sweater a few weeks ago. The front, the collar, the sleeves were all identical. It was made by a company called Moth. I hope Debbie is getting a cut of this because they ripped off Poppy too. But they made it in a woman's size and added a button.

I don't know why I feel so angry about this. It's Debbie Bliss's designs they stole, not mine. But stealing is stealing and it's just wrong.

I finished the body of my top-down raglan a few days ago. I'm working on the sleeves now. I also finished knitting the sugar bowl and lid for the Fiesta tea set. I still need to do the handles. Then I'm on to the tea pot. I've been fiddling around on a lot of projects in the last few days. I started working on the sleeves for the Candy Sam. I knit a few more inches on the Waving Lace socks. Progress on many fronts.
