Yesterday evening I met up with some City Knitty friends for a last visit to my lys. I certainly wasn’t planning on buying anything, but it’s round the corner so I went to say hello. Jeanette had unearthed some Lana Grossa sample balls that I hadn’t seen before and so I came home with this. Because I absolutely do not have enough red yarn, and I definitely need a red hat. After no calculating at all I cast on, working a stitch pattern I found in the 3rd Barbara Walker dictionary into a disc. It seems to be working so far, though there’s not really any way to get a big floppy beret out of a single 50g ball. Oh well, that’s just an excuse to make another floppier version.

I love the little I cord stalk and it makes for a really easy way to cast on in the centre of a circle. Red, cashmere, lace, cables, berets and a bargain – so much to love.

It’s sad to see Hand Knit close, especially as it was so convenient but there’s a brand new yarn shop in Edinburgh which is rather exciting. It opened yesterday and I’m going to investigate this afternoon. I’m sure there will be something to show for that trip!

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.
