Just remember that your hobby is someone else’s living.

Agreed, and this is why I’ve picked up and put down, repeatedly, the idea of selling my crocheting. If I were to charge a fair price it would be hard to find buyers, but if I lower the price then I am undercutting those who do it professionally and need to put food on the table. I did do one commission piece for a friend, a Katniss cowl. When I originally quoted a price to her I was almost apologetic because it was so high, but it was a fair value for my time and efforts. She didn’t bat an eye because she understood that a bespoke product comes at a cost. Many consumers do not. Additional lesson learned: only sell projects that use super bulky yarn and a size k hook. ;-)
