How much would you charge?
I've been asked to knit some baby afghans, starting with a car seat sized blanket.

I'm not charging this lady much since it's my first time knitting "for hire".

She is providing the yarn, so that's not a factor in the cost. All of the patterns we're looking at are simple, i.e., no cables, no colorwork beyond simple stripes, no overly intracate patterns that would require stitch markers, row counters and the inability to watch TV while knitting.

So, I'm curious, what would you charge to knit a car seat, standard, and crib sized baby afghan?

I've already got a price in mind for this first time around, but it got me curious as to what other knitters think their time and talents are worth.
