I’m not a Tuesday’s child; I’m a Friday’s child (loving and giving), but I feel full of grace today.
Several Good Things have happened over the last week. I got some work done on a pair of Hermione’s Everyday Socks (by Erica Lueder) for a friend (I just started the heel flap).
I have also gotten inquiries about doing a medievalish sweater for someone, in specific colors. If any of you are good at pricing handknits, I would appreciate you contacting me, so I can figure out a price to quote the fellow. I am told that I can charge fairly for this client, because he is in favor of supporting small craftspeople. If you can assist me in pricing such a garment, please leave word in the comments where I can contact you!
The same gent also wants a close knit hat done in the same color scheme. I’m pretty sure I can do that, given that I can do fair isle knitting. Mind, he did not specify a design, just the colors (green, black, red, white), but I have an idea or two for a design I think he would like. I figure to charge about $30 for the hat, because it’s a bit more complex than I would otherwise do. If any of folks who are good at pricing want to guide me here, though, it would be appreciated. Oh, and I would be charging separately for the cost of the yarn for these projects.
And I have had a request that I cannot reveal details about just yet, but it would be a Very Good Thing if all the details can be worked out.
So, that’s my knitting news for the day. The Sunday Morning Shawlette is on hold for the moment, so I can get these socks done.
See everyone next week, and I hope you get all your holiday knitting, crocheting, or whatever craft is yours done in plenty of time for the actual holidays!
