Anyone knitted for Wool and the gang?

Is it worth bothering with?

It sounded tempting in the surface but the deeper I get into the small print the more it sounds like you'll be left with pennies, if that!

Any experiences appreciated! smile

Don't have personal experience of this company, but years ago used to knit for a local shop. In my case, it was pennies as you say. Worth doing it if you like doing it, and can do it in front of the tv or whatever, not if you want to make NMW. Suspect this is something similar?!

Similar but you have to buy their yarn too which is super expensive, and p&p costs. I enjoy knitting but I don't think I'll bother...

Ah...so you don't have a buyer when you do the work?

The company pays for the items then sells them on.

Hmm. Would be interested to know how quickly they pay you for the item, when they don't have a buyer, or can you only knit when they they have a definite order/buyer iuswim? Also, how do they know you are not a rubbish knitter grin Not saying you are, but it is potentially an issue. Sounds a bit risky, and if the wool etc is expensive, wondering how many buyers they get. Can't see them buying loads of stock, with no sign of sales, wouldn't make business sense.
