In Search of Peace and Happiness - Day 10

Saturday is one of the days when Knitting Pattern Central is updated with new patterns.  While it always makes me happy to see new knitting patterns, one of the things that I find particularly appealing about this site is the generosity that is inherent in what is shared.  Some wonderfully talented and creative people are prepared to grant us access to their wonderful work for free - work which they could easily sell.  Knowing that there are people out there who are driven by the joy of sharing their work makes me happy.  Although, I can also see the other side of the coin - we all need to make a living and put food on the table - seeing a bit of balance is nice, too.  And yes, I will admit it, sometimes having a positive experience with a free pattern makes me much more inclined to pay for a pattern from the same designer.

I agree... and I have a friend who goes out of her way to find free patterns. She knits some of the prettiest stuff!
