I promise more substantial blogging tonight. But right now, important question:
would you pay someone to design a personalized pattern? (nothing like a sweater, etc. but maybe a shawl, or hat, or socks, to your specifications). This would be for those that have an idea, but just cannot translate it to a design.
secondly: would you pay someone to knit a pattern designed personally for you? ( for example, a hat of a favorite sports team). This would obviously be more costly, but I think would be worth the cost for something totally unique and 100% personalized.
