I've been toying with the idea to sell some knitwear on etsy but they would have to be:

-my own designs
-quick knits

In order for it to be legal and worthwhile... no one would pay the money necessary for it to be worth my while to make a 4-ply fairisle thing.

Things like this, spied at Anthropologie, would be worth my while, though:
They're selling it for $43 CAD, and I read somewhere that you should charge 3 times the cost of the yarn for a handknit, so that would mean I had a...$14.33 yarn budget.... somewhat realistic, I suppose.

I recently designed and knit a beret for a good friend... It was a mix of cables and moss-stitch knit out of Blue Sky suri merino... a dream to knit with... but maybe some slightly less expensive, equally or more chunky yarn... still soft... the wheels are turning.

The preview of the fall interweave is up! The backstage tweed jacket is so gorgeous... got to make it.

From the Lyell Fall 2008 collection. I'm thinking of a 4-ply or dk max tweed.

A blanket like the one above. Grey is apparently one of the biggest trends for interiors for 2008. I see it in something like wool cotton, with some crochet involved....

Thanks to desire to inspire for the inspiration.
