secret pal goodies

by ysoldateague December 14, 2005

I got this exciting package last week – but I’m disorganised and only just got it all back together so I could take pics.spgoodies

yes that is lorna’s laces sock yarn, it’s soo much prettier in real life. So pretty in fact that when I got the package I started knitting with it (while halfway through getting dressed and without winding it into a ball). I’m trying to decide whether to use it for socks – they would be pretty – or in a lacey scarf or somehting that would show it off better.
My secret pal also sent bamboo sock needles ; a make your own crackers kit, I feel like a little kid again it’s ace; and a cute little purse to match my ruby slippers – so thoughtful. And confirming that my secret pal is incredibly awesome – I’ve always thought that bags and purses should only be given as gifts if there’s something inside them (really doesn’t matter what it’s just disappointing when there’s nothing at all). I’ve got no idea whether it was intentional or not but inside the purse was 10pence, which made me smile

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.
