During the big flurry of inquiries for the animal hooded cowls, I had a woman ask for two of the wolf hoodies--she sent me the pattern photo of the crochet version. Despite having recently realized that some of these non-crafty clients DID have a preference of crochet over knitting, I never actually asked her what her preference was. It was actually hard to see in the photo that it was crochet, and I only figured it out by comparing the photo with the designer's photos. Well, I knit it. And, it wasn't just one...it was two sets. Sets, as in, with matching mittens. When I posted a sneak peak, she expressed her concerns. She said it wasn't "bulky". I said that I had indeed used a bulky yarn, and matched the gauge of the pattern, and bulky is the only way to describe it. What she meant, was she wanted the textured look of the crocheted stitches, and she was going to decline the items. Bummer.
I posted this sad news on my personal FB page, along with the photos and a some-what sarcastic comment asking if anyone is looking for a wolf hoodie. Well, someone did come through and said she'd take both sets! Yay! Slightly less than what the original order was for, but that's okay.
Yarn In: 10 076gr
Yarn Out: 440gr + 6908gr = 7348gr
Balance: 2728gr MORE brought IN then out
Costs: $511.49/348 days = $1.47/day
Wait a minute...it's Dec 30...how can I be at day 348?! Let's change that! $511.49/364 = $1.40. Much better!
