Just Wondering


So I was just wondering - is it OK to just knit a (for sale) pattern from a picture? If I don't plan on selling it or stealing it and calling it my own pattern - if I think I can kind of fudge and use someone else's basic idea, is that OK? I think that it is fine - but then I was thinking that maybe it's just not good "knitting etiquette" or something - I'm just cheap - and highly unoriginal. Can anyone put me on the right track?
( the peppers are totally unrelated to anything - had no new yarn to show but felt this needed a little splash of color)

I can't see a problem with that as long as you aren't going to turn around and sell the pattern. People get ideas and inspiration from patterns and pictures all the time. If you think you can get by without a pattern, I say go for it. Me, I'm way too lazy and hate frogging way too much to try. lol

Now, you have piqued my interest in what it is you are wanting to knit. I'm not sure if posting a pic is good since then we'll all know what pattern you ripped off :-) But, still, I want to know!!!
