Be prepared for Ishbel

by ysoldateague January 13, 2009

The pattern isn’t quite done, but it will be up very soon. In the meantime maybe you need to get some yarn? This pattern features two absolutely beautiful yarns by two of my favourite indie dyers, and if neither of these takes your fancy both of them have lots of other yarns that would be suitable. You need anything from lace to fingering (4ply) weight and the pattern is in two sizes requiring around 330 yds / 300m [610 yds / 555m].

This is the larger laceweight version in Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace in Kisses.

I need to take photos in daylight but this is the smaller version in Old Maiden Aunt alpaca / merino 4ply in Moody.(psst. might want to get that now – there’s a sale on!)

Thank you to Jenand Lilith for making such fantastic yarns for me to work with.

Pricing patterns has always been one of the hardest parts of designing and I’ve often felt like the “standard” price of knitting patterns is both lower than other similar products (eg. indie sewing patterns) and doesn’t really reflect the amount of work that goes into them. At the same time, it’s totally fair to worry that rising pattern prices will price people out.
