Purchase patterns

Today I want to point out something I've been noticing - people tend to be more sharing-friendly with free patterns, no matter how low their quality is (what I mean here is really ugly toys and scarfs and so on :D). When it comes to purchasable items, people tend to remain indifferent. I mean, real crafting people wouldn't react like this. In my opinion, if you have enough money to spend on yarn, then you have enough money to buy patterns that you would really enjoy making! Come on, life is to short to spend it on crochetting ugly free stuff!
As for me, I was skeptical too at the beginning. I thought I could happily enjoy making free patterns for the rest of my life. Then, I came across astonishing patterns that, unfortunately, weren't for free. I also bought books from which I learned a few tips I wouldn't find online. I am currently subcribed to Simply Crochet, and I find myself quite often spending money on patterns that I don't even use! They're impossibly cute, like this raindeer I purchased last Christmas and never made, that I can't help myself not having them!

What about you? How do you feel about purchasable patterns? :)
