Recently finished this, for my soon-to-be blogshop; crocheted in a ripple pattern in Rowan wool dyed with natural dyes.

Super news - out of interest, did you get a decent amount for it taking into account the actual time taken to make it and materials etc?

Glad to hear. Was talking to a local craft woman yesterday and was quite upset to hear that she only tries to get back the cost of materials or time on things she makes and sells, never both. Big shame as I think she could charge more for what she sells and told her so.

Pricing is always difficult, but I'm fed up being stuffed for top quality handmade items, so what goes into Pocaid is realistically priced. If they won't pay, then they dont want it enough, or don't/won't appreciate it. Bit like good food I think. These days, you really do get what you pay for.
