After considering what Dolyce (artlady) and others here had to say about knitting for financial remuneration, I asked the Alpaca ladies what they were considering to compensate me for my time.
They said, nothing. They just thought that since I love to knit, I'd want to do it for free.
I told them at the beginning that I needed a moonlighting position that wouldn't conflict with my home business, but that I needed desperately to bring in more income.
Does that sound like free to you?
So, we had a serious miscommunication and now the deal's off. (But I still get my 50% for life discount. That's nice.)
