OT (old topic)
At hockey tonight, one of the other moms begged me to knit her a sweater, and offered to pay me. "How much would you charge? I'm serious." I just had to laugh and tell her I knit things for the joy of giving them to people I care for, and I promised to knit her something soon. She's a knitter too, but doesn't feel confident enough to do something for herself.

What a compliment to your work! I'm making my first adult sweater for my husband and I've sweat bullets over stitches, gauge, tension, you name it, because I want it to be perfect for him. She may be a novice knitter who isn't quite confident in her skill. I know that feeling all too well. It's taken me 20+ years to get the guts for an adult sweater.

Uhh.... I wouldn't knit a sweater for someone else except maybe my girls. I can barely get one done for myself. The amount of time you put in would make it more expensive than anything anyone would want to pay IMO.

Lori, you could be her inspiration.

I don't think I'd want to make a sweater for money. Which is odd because I do give blankets & such to charity.

Over the weekend, my mom asked me to make sweaters for my 3 great nephews. The twins' birthday is next month. They are all toddlers, so maybe I'll have all 3 done by then. I'm still looking for patterns I like.
