Dear Knitting Designers,

Dear Knitting Designers,

Sometimes, after a pattern has been released to the public,
you discover a little mistake, true?
Then, responsible pattern designer that you are,
you release an updated version, with corrections.

I get an email alerting me to the new version, and download it.
So far, so good, right?

A few months later, I sort out my work room and discover
two apparently identical patterns for, let’s call the pattern
“Spring in Kansas” because Ravelry has no such pattern,
so no one should take it personally.

I examine the two versions, which have the same copyright date,
the same file name, the same number of pages, etc.
In desparation I send a dumb email to the designer asking for
clues to identify the newer version – maybe it’s the one with
a K3 in the 24th line of the pattern repeat on page 15?

So, por favor, if it wouldn’t mess up your system,
I’d really appreciate it if the newer version had a catchy name

maybe “Spring in Kansas Updated”.
Pretty please?
