New York

by ysoldateague April 19, 2009

365-36After an easy journey with lots of space (upgrade!) and a little knitting I arrived in New York on Thursday evening where I met up with Hannah.
We spent yesterday afternoon walking around downtown where we found the adorable Purl Soho and Purl Patchworkand had lunch at the lovely Once Upon a Tart beside Purl.
I love this very springy display. I picked up some yarn and cotton stuffing for a new toy I’m working on. I’m looking forward to trying this more natural stuffing (which I got in Purl Patchwork – ask for it) and it was surprisingly cheap – comparable to the price of the polyester stuff at home.
Today we wandered around and had a picnic in central park before exploring the Natural History museum where I met a Narwhal skeleton
and found some yarn making.
Aren’t these spindles beautiful?
If you’re NYC I’ll be at The Point tomorrow from 2 with lots of samples and books – I’d love to see you there.

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

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.
