Clarity And a Universe of Supportive and Wonderful People (That Would Be All of YOU!)

I want to thank everyone who responded to my post about the confusion over pictures of a really very lovely label that originally held spinning fiber from Widdershin Woolworks. I was very glad that that no one felt ill towards me for this mishap since I would never want to use someones artwork without permission, even by mistake. Since I bought this fiber so very long ago, "Just call me Methuselah", there would have been no way I could have legitimately gotten permission to use this art if indeed I had been using the label as my own, and I think it it was actually quite brave of the person who alerted me to this possible issue. I believe she was trying to be sure the artist and friend was protected and I admire that greatly.

I have since received two e-mails. One from the person who first approached me with a very nice letter indicating that she was now more clear on what had happened and hoped I had not been inconvenienced. She was very gracious. I also received a delightful e-mail from the original artist, Tenzin Nyikel (Michelle Mueller) who is now living in Dharamsala as a Tibetan Buddhist Nun working with orphans. Both she and her friend enjoy spinning and knitting and both sound like very lovely people. All's well that ends well. I hope to post some progress soon . Thank you again for all the great support. You all are wonderful people, but then I would hope you all knew that! Good Evening.

Glad things ironed out ok. I am busy figuring out what to take with me on a 10 day, never ending conference trip next week......

It's a beautiful label and beautifully spun yarn, and I'm glad that everything work out.

No harm is done, so you can stop tearing out hair now. You need to design your own label anyway--your spinning is worth the effort.

I'm so glad everything worked out! Spin on, dear Jane!

Thanks to everyone for your support! I'm happy it worked out too. I have such pleasure in my knitting and keeping this blog. It's my postive place:-) As for me having my own lable, dear fleegle, maybe I can get my teenage neice to make me one. She's the artist in the family but she's kind of "Goth Lite" so it might have a skull or two on it! As for what to bring on a 10 day conference, maybe go for something less complicated in case the conference fries your brain. I always bring way more than I can possibly get done when I go away. I'm afraid I won't find a knitting store. I will be knitting a little more now rather than spinning. I just have to try to finish something!
