grey+brown

Greys and browns a favourite combination.
I like black but I find that the more I ageing the less I fancy it (it was mainly the colour of my teens years).

Have you seen Morran collection of artworks?

I went for a walk this morning, such a beautiful day, but my friends in the local wool shop are not happy at all.
I must be one of the few crazy knitters who knit even at the seaside with 40C.

I love your greys and browns!

And I don't knit anymore, but when I did, I found I did it most in the warm weather, too. That way everything's done for winter! To me it just makes sense - I support you! :)

Samantha, yes it makes sense. I knit all year around, really, non stop. I guess i'm a knitaholic :)
About the "here we go again" thing: my blog is not there, but many beautiful ones (that I follow) are. We should stop this nasty trend all together before it gets to the point that people will stop blogging rather than seeing their hard work stolen by foxes (as we called them in Italy). Write to those thieves to support Sandra and the other people that are there on that list because each of them was/is robbed.

I was thinking of writing to the sponsors to tell them, too. But it seems like their only sponsor is another website on their network? Not one of the "stolen" ones, but one of the sites listed at the top of the page.

Either way, yes, I agree we should all do something. It's so disgusting!

i don't understand the difference between the site you mentionned and P*op*py**tal*k for example, do you think they don't have sponsors too ? this situation exists since a long time but now internet is crowded with this kind of site unfortunately

no more ideas just a rollin' and tumblin'


like you i add some withe in my black, i have grey baby alpaca on my crochet just right now

happy knitting Alessandra

Ah severine you are touching a very delicate issue. The difference I guess is that these people don't ask for permission, to put your entire blog content in their site, so I guess it's a big difference. Happy crocheting, I ordered some buffalo wool! (just one ball since is bloody expensive!)

Samantha said...

Ha, I just went back to Artessen and realized I wasn't seeing their sponsors' ads because of my adblocker software! Oops! Now I see the sponsor ads, and will probably email them to advise them to spend their money with people who aren't unethical.

la casita said...

Samantha, I will do the same. I guess that is probably one effective way to deter people from such idiotic idea of stealing an entire blog. A blog is like a home after all, those these bullies go in other people's houses and steal from them all the things they like? mmmhh don't think so , because you might get arrested, but they think they are entitled to steal from internet, this greediness must be punished!
