•9 balls of yarn: $50
•Estimated labor costs: 40 hours x 5.25 = $210
•Value of the Sanity Hours (SH) enjoyed during the knitting of this (as yet) collarless and sleeveless sweater: Priceless
But does it bother me that I could buy a sweater 100 times better than this at Lands' End for $30? Just a little.
