Welcome to the 2nd episode of the Crochet Chat Podcast! I’m so pleased to have gotten such great feedback on the first episode… and stoked to be on my second!
In this episode, I’ll be chatting about an issue that’s close to many of our hearts: how to price and sell your crocheted items. Even if you don’t sell items professionally, you’ve probably been commissioned by a friend to make a piece, and you’ve thought, ‘how in the world do I price that?’
I’ll also talk about my pineapple shawl adventure, tell you about Suri alpaca and brag about my latest trick (reading while crocheting!) and fill you in on what cooking has to do with designing.
