goodies!

by ysoldateague October 26, 2005

Two rather exciting packages arrived.
First my secret pal sent me this:

Watercolour pencil, postcards of watercolour paper, a bag of lavender, cute little triangles of shower gel stuff and a shower puff thingy (not pictured cos it was in the shower by the time I took the photo.

And these little guys arrived yesterday:


They were created by an artist called Gael Cecchin and arrived on my mantlepiece via tinyshowcase.com

Unfortunately at the weekend I lost my phone – so i have nobodies’ number. If you want to get hold of me I really do check my mail with rather obsessive frequency – I’m less obsessive however about replying.

I got my haircut yesterday and my hairdresser – the only one allowed anywhere near my hair (Jack at BeBaBoom – Edinburgh) gave me a ponytail of hair. Uhuh really, he wants me to knit something for a photo shoot with it. Expect some pics when I’ve had time to play with it.

I’m knitting a very delicate lacey shrug thing at the moment – in Kid silk haze. I’ll probably be posting a pattern at some point.

Being the weird geek I am I made a 5 hour round trip to see Ladytron last weekend. It was great – I have lots of photos but haven’t had a chance to edit them yet – Helen’s eyes seem determined they like being red – perhaps she is a demon? But I’ll make a little gallery soon and hopefully someone other than me will appreciate it.

Pay what you can pattern pricing
Pay what you can pattern pricing

by Ysolda Teague May 10, 2019 0 Comments

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.
