Yesterday I made a sweater, today I met the perfect wearer

by ysoldateague March 05, 2014

I wouldn’t exactly recommend knitting a sportweight pullover in a single day, even in the smallest of sizes, but I now know that it can be done. I even managed to do one or two other things, and it didn’t quite require sitting on the sofa all day. The problem now though is that I have a comparison point between what I can achieve in my usual extremely dis-tractable state and that kind of focus!

 

Spurred on to make just one more sweater while the newest member of our team is such a freshly baked model. Bex and I got to meet her today, and oh Saz, she is the sweetest – and so good at her job! I thought you might like to see some her work (although these are hastily chosen and completely unedited pics).

I think she liked it. The yarn is Jill Draper’s Mohonk, perfect squishy cormo goodness and the design is my own, pattern to come.

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.
