this is getting a bit ridiculous.....

I knit a sweater.....a sweater I love. I love it so much I wear it once a week. I even threw caution to the wind and tossed it in the washer so that I wouldn't have to risk the dry cleaner doing a number on it and I really wasn't in the mood to do a handwash....it turned out okay, you know why? Because that sweater loves me back. It makes me look good, it makes me feel good. Lots of people have made it and it makes them look good too, but I have an issue that's been stuck in my arse like a thorn for the past few months since I finished my beautiful sweater...........
While the designer is someone whose patterns I love, she has marked every sweater on Ravelry as a 'favorite' of hers, everyones that is but mine...........
and I have to say I'm a little bugged by this.....more so than I probably should be......but annoyed I am. I even emailed her and told her how much I loved knitting the sweater, how much I love the sweater....Nothing....not even a 'thank you, i'm glad you like it'
I really need to get over it, but everytime I log on and see another round of the sweaters knit by others marked as a favorite it sends me into a whole new spin........I just wanted to share, I could probably stand on my soap box all day ranting and raving about how mine is beautiful and wonderful and there are some that, well, some people just knit ugly and that's fine but if you're going to 'fave' that, then you should fave mine.......maybe she knows me from a past life and I tangled her yarn, lord knows the thought has crossed my mind now....
anyway.....i'll step down now and hope that maybe someday she will give me the validation that I seek, the recognition that she has bestowed upon everyone else, until then I'll knit someone elses patterns..........

This is one of the reasons I avoid marking any project using a design of mine as a favorite. I'm always afraid I'll miss one and hurt the knitter's feelings.

Maybe the designer just didn't see you've knit her design?

I would agree with you Jane and even give her the benefit of the doubt, except that I emailed her about it and still nothing..... :) It's okay though. I love the sweater and I love her designs.....
