Olive Branch?

In the interests of editorial balance, it would be unfair of us to report (early last week) that the BBC Licencing people were preventing the creator of various knitting patterns from selling her patterns without informing our readers of this follow up story.

Newsround have reported that the witty knitter concerned hasn’t in fact been threatened with court action, with a BBC spokesperson adding:

"While we don’t have any plans to offer any knitted toys, in the future, who knows? They’ve proved so popular and we would work with her to see that they’re done properly."

Let’s hope this matter is all sorted out soon.
