Oops, sorry I'm so slow catching up on posts...
I don't mind if you use the emoticons. That knitter with the Bow wasn't mine, actually, but it didn't appear to be copyrighted, and DH assured me that in the world of emoticons, it's a free-for-all. No doubt the other ones, which we did make (all based on that bow one, like the frogging emoticon), will get discovered by and usurped by other forums at some point, and that's okay because it's a give and take.
