    Hi – sorry but I’ve a bit of a complaint about the pricing of your patterns. I would love to knit Turid jumpers but the I feel that the pattern price is far too expensive . When I look at the picture of them and then look at the pictures of the cushion covers next to it -Kerstin etc which are the same price I don’t know how you can justify charging the same price for a basic tiny sweater pattern and a highly pattered full size cover.

      Thanks for your comment. We think our pricing is fair. The same amount of design work goes into both the sweater and the cushion and we think our patterns are well worth their price.

    Here is my guess for the cardigan, and why the body was re-done from the yoke down… I am guessing that the person was new to color-work, and their tension on the carried yarn changed a LOT as they knit the body of the sweater, and they kept going, thinking that the problem would disappear when the sweater was blocked. That, or it was put away with cookie crumbs on it, and mice…. (hey, wait a minute, is this just a sneaky way of finding out what mistakes your listeners have… How shall I say this… Personal experience with?)

    Looking forward to seeing the guesses (or fantastic tales) of the others!

    Cheers, Annie

    My guess is a much loved cardigan sweater was stained shortly after finishing. Perhaps it had been a gift. Red wine? Dark chocolate? Hopefully something fun. And then even with cleaning there was a shadow left. I say shortly after finishing because there was still the desire, and energy, to take out the damaged area and re-knit.

    I have been knitting for a year now and still need a lot of instruction which is why I love to watch your tutorials. I am a quilter and have sewn for 50 years now but I don’t know that much about knitting. I really wish you would put your pattern for the sweater you made like your garter stitch blanket. I don’t know how to make a sweater and so I would have liked to have more explanation other than you just make the sleeves and make it. HOW? If you don’t think all these experienced knitters would buy a pattern, how about a tutorial? I would also wear it to my quilting meetings, not just in my garden. Please tell me how to make this really cool thing!
