simplyolive said...

yes, i will sell knits.
not sure about sweaters though, as they take so long, and would be pricey.....but, for the right price. :)

Wow, Stella McCartney could have done it better, really!
How many hours did you spent on that? Fantastic! Go, sell it, you are the next designer :-)

Andrea said...

Oops, of course I meant Stella McCartney COULD NOT have done it better :-)
sorry!

Wow, so lovely!!! I haven't been knitting much lately, but I think this is nudging me back;)

simplyolive said...

andrea--thanks for the compliment!
not sure how long it took, but it went fairly quickly since the yarn is so chunky. (the hand sewn buttonholes, however, took some time to do...)

...thanks kait!
