I wish I had some ideas for you, but I don't.

Please don't be offended, but I do have a suggestion though. As I am sensitive to various scents, I would stay away from that if I were you. I would not be able to purchase them no matter how wonderful they were and I'm sure that they will be.

Good luck at the bazaar!


I'm not allergic but probably would wash them before using if a scented fabric softener were used. Febreeze is the worst. My work does not get soiled--wash cloths knit/crochet up quickly, so I think just placing them under a stack of knitting books for a few days would give them a nice finished look. If you do decide to go with a soft scent, there are some essential oil sprays with lavender that give a faint clean smell. I use it to freshen up bedding in my guest room--even though I wash after each use it can be several months before someone stays over night and usually it's spur of the moment. Another thought, place them in your linen closet for a few days where you keep your special soaps--my towels and bedding always smell great because I get hand-milled soaps that are, again, made with essential oils, preferably lavender. If you sell them in pairs, use a bit of pretty grossgrain ribbon tied in one corner with a bow. Good luck and have fun!

If using Icord on hem and neck, I would do the same for sleeves. Why not just do stockinette addition with the rolled hem? Match the style of color blocks . I did assume body of sweater is done in stockinette.


Exactly, I would stick with the rolled hem to maintain the "look". Boxy cropped sweaters require a bone thin siluette so adding at least 4" would give a smoother vertical, more flattering line for a fuller figure (in my thoughts, normal figure) but still have a youthful boxy look. Just continue the box pattern and end it at whatever length looks good on her. Fun sweater.

No, sell it as a set as you planned.

Whoever said that is entitled to her opinion.... but here`s mine:
It is a charming set. It is a lot of skilled detailed work. There is a cost for all of the materials. The price is more than fair.

It might be interesting to ask her what price she thinks is fair.... just for information.... but not for you to change your price.
Was her intent to bargain with you? Did she suggest another price?

You could put her on your ignore list so you don`t receive any further PMs (I did not see a reply like this on your topic for the doll) if you do not want to hear anything more.
No, sell it as a set as you planned. br br Whoeve... (show quote)



My thoughts as well. Your work is very professional just a few marketing photos in cute settings and it will be sold. The set will be so appreciated by some fortunately little girl/boy, wish I had the patience to make something like this.

Remember what happened in New Zealand after their massacre? yes, it is going on all around the world, but our government is so tied up in satisfying the few that nothing ever gets done. NRA represents gun manufacturers no one else!

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/21/world/gun-laws-australia-uk-germany-canada.html

"It took New Zealand just six days to announce an immediate plan to change to the nation's gun policy after a gunman killed 50 people at two masques in Christchurch last week."

Couldn't see your sweater until I lightened it a bit--could be cell phones are more "smart" and corrected the photo. This is a very cute top and does indeed look great on you! Thanks for sharing.

I have this book and it's of course on my to-do list--you've inspired me, plus yarns are on sale right now. This book was at the library, loved the designs, and then I found it on line, ebay has several at really good prices plus you are supporting individual sellers: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=Viking+Knits+and+Ancient+Ornaments&_sacat=267&LH_TitleDesc=0&_sop=15

How about cotton/linen blend? It has a firmer shape and doesn't sag like 100% cotton. The pilling part happens usually when a stretchy synthetic fiber is introduced. Webs is having a summer sale on right now and offer many, many options for cotton blends: https://www.yarn.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=cotton+linen+yarn&button=search

I too have a huge collection, printed out and on my computer. In a nut shell I would say designers need to protect their products just like any one and usually it is stated somewhere, guidelines for using their patterns either free or purchased. I scan and print out patterns from my knitting/crochet books and write all over them but keep them in a notebook for my own references not to pass on to others, however, I may loan the book. I do not make money in any way from these patterns, nor exploit the work of a designer by posting on the internet or sending copies off to friends--instead I will refer them to the site where the pattern is published/available. Free patterns do have restrictions like not copying for other purposes than your own use, not alterating slightly and passing off as your own. Some designers don't have a problem with your selling items made with their patterns and some request that you give credit to the designer on these items--that is if you are going on line like Etsy to sell. If in doubt contact the designer and get permission. We're all in this together and sharing does require respect as well. If anyone has more to add, please do!
