I recently saw on Facebook a brilliant Google Form that helps you calculate the cost and time of what a knitter would have to do if you wanted him/her to make you something. Knitters, and crocheters, for that matter, it’s definitely worth looking into. Those who are curious about what goes into a handmade item, take a look, too. It will tell you a little bit about what goes into the creation of a knit item.
I did not create this calculator, but rather Gladys over at Yarn Floozies came up with it. This particular blog doesn’t look like it’s been updated in a while, but there’s some good information over there, anyway.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on a calculator like this, knitter/crocheter or not.
