Two posts in one day? Madness!

I am making the snapdragon tam from Ysolda Tegue's Whimsical Little Knits 2. What a great pattern set! I am making the Peak's Island Hood but I hit a rough patch and could not devote enough attention to it at work to fix it. So it's on the backburner- along with this because I can't telemarket and cable. Just saying.

I am making this for a professor's daughter. I don't know if I can part with it. I might have to start making these for adults. How cute would that be? Also, how much do you think I should charge her? I am no good at pricing my stuff.

In other news, Annie, Stephen and I tried to make bacon.

Turns out you need to cook it...

But not this much...

I failed. So badly. But best shirt ever, right? Got it out of a dead lady in Colinwood's trash.

for pricing i generally factor in price of yarn (and since i know you have tons of it, this part is probably mostly profit, but still factor it as if you had to buy it— whether or not you did) + time spent on the piece (the more complex, the more expensive it'd be at a retailer!) + then shipping where applicable. hopefully that helps!
