Lately I've been coming across quite a few patterns I'm interested in that are only available in pdf (email attachment) form. They're still $8.50-$10.00 which is what you'd pay for a printed pattern from your LQS. For some reason it seems to me a pattern ought to be a little cheaper if you're just getting an email attachment and having to print it out yourself, using your own paper, ink, time, etc.
Anyone else thinking the same, or am I out in left field with that thought? :)
