One of my very first "haunts" for free patterns has ended and I can say that I, for one, am very sad to see them go. MAGKNITS has repeatedly published some of my favorite patterns and was a place that I looked forward to visiting every month. I have know for a few months that the editor had a drain on her time and well, when you are not getting paid, and you have to make cuts....
What has REALLY made me sad more than that though, is in the explanation on the site. They have been getting complaints in recent months. COMPLAINTS. When someone gives you something for free, you thank them. If they give you something exceptional, you rally behind them. If you don't like it, smile, say "thank you" and don't look back - you don't COMPLAIN.
Today's feeling of entitlement SICKENS me to the point that I don't always doubt my 'hermit' ways. I tire of the whining and complaining from people who don't contribute yet are unhappy with what they receive from society - as if society was placed here for the sole purpose of providing for THEM.
I would like to say "THANK YOU" to Kerrie over at the former MAGKNITS for her dedication and phenomenal publication. You WILL be missed.
