Pricing finished items
So I was showing off some armwarmers I'd just finished making (this pattern, though adjusted to some degree since I was using a thicker yarn so the gauge was different), and one of the people wanted to commission me to make a set for her.

...and I realized that I have no idea at all how to price things. I mean, obviously I want to cover the cost of the yarn; do I just charge cost, then, or charge something over it, and if so what? or do I say "whatever you feel like paying as long as it's at least cost"? or, uh. *flail*

Advice?

(If it affects things, it's a friend, not random stranger.)

I knit, therefore I am.

Current projects: a hat, one pair of socks, a pair of fingerless gloves, and zero sanity. Future projects: more socks, more gloves (some with fingers, even!), a tea cozy, a penguin scarf, and even less sanity.
