I got an email this morning from Liz Lovick. If you follow this blog at all, you know who she is.
I have an ethical dilemma.....
A yarn company were having a 'competition' for designs. The money was worth while and at GREAT expense I got some of the yarn (the dollar chose that time to head up and I got done for tax etc!)..
I sent in two designs. Fine. But they have now changed the selection process to a web vote. If I had known this at the beginning I would never have done anything, because we all know web votes can be abused by lobbying....
My dilemma is that I know others will be getting family and friends to vote for them. I disagree with such stuff, but....!!
So, in true internet fashion, I have selected a few friends to send the link to:
My designs are 4 and 5.....
I voted for #5, and I think if we all vote for the same one, she'll have a better chance. I just think it sucks that the rules were changed mid-stream, and I know that Liz has done a lot to give to the knitting community. I think it would nice if we gave her our support in return...yes, I'm lobbying, but hey, you gotta fight fire with fire, right?
So do me a favor, take a second, and vote for a very nice lady's work.
