Knit Print

My postponed printmaking classes have finally started and I’m having so much fun – and longing for a printing press! I made this last week, using a technique called dry point. We drew on zinc with a sharp point and though I had no idea how it was going to turn out I’m quite pleased with it. I’d like to try re-printing this to see if I can get the index fingers a bit lighter, hopefully I’ll be able to try that next time.

Here’s the actual zinc plate I made, since I like to see both sides of something like this.

This week I continued the knitting theme, but my ‘plate’ / piece of card had to be coated in varnish so we didn’t get to print them tonight. I’m really excited to print it next week and see how it turned out.

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.
