What a beautiful poncho, Cindy! I'd say it's worth at least $100! Maybe you should go up on your prices!

Good idea that--quoting the price to people (yarn + labor + headaches), but it's difficult to do with family. Still, a worthy idea and one I'll adopt in certain situations (but my prices will be over the top since I don't want to knit for strangers).

My MIL is also really gung-ho about me selling my knitted and crocheted objects. She mentions it a lot. Of course, she drastically undercharges for her paintings and therefore doesn't understand that I could never charge enough to make it worthwhile for me to sell my handmade items.

I'll knit and crochet because I want to, not because I have to or because someone expects me to! Maybe I should tell her that!
