Continuing my thoughts on re-engaging with Ravelry, pattern cataloging, pricing equity, etc. Writing out my sliding scale policy used in selling my knitwear patterns.
Been trying out a lot of new things for my writing toolkit.
WARNING: tech gore.
My Kickshaws samples were prone to falling down the back of the foot, which I see as a major design flaw. In the interest of not beating myself up for releasing a pattern that I feel isn’t “good enough” (and feeling guilty for that), here’s a fix that I’ve developed.
I’m selling my designs on Ravelry again, after much internal debate about effective action. TL;DR: since the pandemic began, I’ve been using all of my income outside of my student stipend to contribute to mutual aid. Ravelry was most of that income. I think it’d be better and more impactful for me to restart that income stream so I can contribute more to my community.
