And I completely missed it while I was away at Squam but this blog turned 10 a few weeks ago. I started it because on a complete whim I decided I could make a knitting pattern and submit it to Knitty — their submission template asked for a short bio and suggested it was a good place to include your blog link, so I made one. If you’d told me then that this would have changed my entire adult life, in so many wonderful ways, I’d never have believed you.  Right now I’m sitting in the sunshine, in a wonderfully inspiring (if a little messy) studio, I get to come to work everyday and talk about yarn and the history of textiles and how we can make knitting patterns more fun to use with my fabulous employees, and I can’t imagine what I would have ended up doing that would be more creatively fulfilling with a better community of people. And that, that is because of you. Thank you! Here’s to the next 10!

In case you’d like a laugh, here is my first blog post(it’s more or less sfw unless you’re in a very conservative enviroment but there is some very stylised nudity) — not the most professional start, but in the end my sweater fitting classes do involve a lot of talking about breasts! I’m never doing that much intarsia again though, even if it comes back into style!

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.
