    Someone pointed out that the existing SPs tend to have 2 gameplay objects so there is still hope that we might get something in addition to the knitting content. The only SP I currently own is Vintage Glamour, which has the butler, the drinks case (globe) and the vanity mirror, which means 3 different gameplay objects in one SP. That's a good sign, surely?

    It really depends on what the theme is and how much they put into the gameplay.

    i'd really love to have the rocking chair as another object, and i know people aren't fans of the imaginary friend but i want that too.

    I agree! I think ideally the new pack should include the top two or three options for gameplay, since they must also have received a lot of support. After all, the theme is Arts and Crafts, and both pottery and glassblowing easily fit into that category too, and would make crafty sims seem even more creative. They could give us a knitting skill for the knitting activity, and the other two could be covered by a crafting or a moulding skill (which would result in different products depending on whether sims were using a pottery wheel or glassblowing tools). Having both of these skills would generate more deco objects to sell in a craft store, and potentially more useable objects too (like glass or pottery vases which could be used with the flower arrangements instead of the standard pot we have now), and glass jewellry -- earrings and necklaces -- like those that came with the set in the TS3 store.

    Or if the developers want to keep the theme entirely fabric-oriented, then they should include embroidery and cross-stitching instead. The only feature I don't see fitting in as well is the Edible Food Art, but maybe that's my own lack of imagination: I don't know what fruit centerpieces would have to do with either knitting or knick-knack crafting. However, I would like to get it too, if possible, but maybe in another, more food-oriented pack, with all those cool ultra-modern kitchen appliances and the smoothie maker, and maybe a bake oven and bake sale table for the kids.

    I would be all in for getting more than just knitting but since only knitting has been promised I used "knitting stuff" for now

    also I'd like if people keep in subject which is ideas for b/b and cas objects that could come with this pack

    convo seems to be steering a bit off topic ~
    its fine for now but lets not steer too far :sweat_smile:

    For more CAS items that sims can make, can we please get some cute toddler jammies. It's been forever since toddlers got new pajamas and they're really lacking (as are all life stages, but especially toddlers), and it would be super adorable to be able to knit some adorable pajamas for them.

    Hopefully they do a free the babies patch and surprise us like with the toddlers be such a waste to not be able to knit anything for our little bassinets.
    Sims 4 went from "You Rule" to "One of the stories we want you to tell"

    Knitted baby hats would be so cute.

    And baby blankets.

    First we need basic simple crafts like colourful scarves, hats and mittens, as well as lots of fun wool socks, with stripes and patterns. The socks in particular would be great and so useful. In fact, any of these would be nice to have sims give each other as gifts. Family-oriented sims could get a happy moodlet from receiving them from a family member, while snob sims could turn up their noses at such a humble gift. The same could be true of homemade sweaters/ jumpers for all the ages (from toddler to elder). There should be at least two different meshes of these (one cardigan style and one pullover), with a variety of swatches from nice color-coordinated patterns to ugly garish Christmas sweaters. Some sims could love receiving and wearing them, while certain others (materialistic or snob sims) could be embarrassed by them or mock them (mean sims). I'd also enjoy a sixties style one piece tubular dress and a shawl for the grandmas and new moms.

    For kids, in addition to the clothes, I would love to see loads of newly animated and creative knitted toys too -- from soft blocks and rattles for babies, to tiny animals like elephants, giraffes, pigs, woolly lambs, mice, bees, etc, to raggedy ann and andy-style dolls, baby dolls, colorful clowns, mermaids and princesses. And reversible dolls: just as an example, my mother used to make several varieties of reversible knitted dolls for her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephew and basically anyone who went to her church and had a baby. One of the best and most imaginative was a Red Riding hooded doll with a warm red cape and hood that tied on, hiding cute braided pigtails, as well as a long skirt with knitted lace edges, and holding a knitted basket full of goodies -- a tiny knitted cake with a cherry on top and two knitted muffins. If you turned her skirt over, she became her grandmother with grey curls, a nightgown, cap and shawl, holding a tonic bottle. Then if you turned her on her back, and you pulled her cap over her face, a fierce grey wolf head grinned at you. There was also a before and after Cinderella Doll, one version with a patched skirt, duster and braids, and the second, if you flipped her skirts over, decked out in a shiny ballgown (made from fancy sparkly yarn with pearlescent threads), dotted with knitted roses, capped with puffed sleeves, and also clutching a fan, and wearing a fancy updo along with cute knitted ringlets. We need at least a few new clever and creative toys like these (with new animations and interactions of course).

    I'm hoping our Sims can knit hats that cover the ears. Bobble hats might be cute, but they're useless below 30F.

    Wouldn't it be great if the pack introduced knitted scarves as a separate accessory! Our simmies could knit different scarves which could then be worn with any top or full outfit.

    I would also love it if we could knit baby clothes.

    Yes, I like to dream :D

    Yes, considering the accessories we have, I don't know why they haven't given us scarves yet. The Potterhead CC can do it, after all.

    actually it would be cool if they add knitted cardigans to make those accessory too I want to layer up :c
    some of the clothes just shout ''put something on top'' but you can't :c

    also fully support scarves being accessory cause honestly always paired with shirts I don't want : I

    I've been after layered clothing for years. Probably since I played Sims 2 actually! I remember when Sims 3's Seasons pack came out, the gurus took questions from the fans during a live stream before it was released and my question about layered outfits got picked. The guru misunderstood me and said it was possible but was actually talking about the outerwear options. I haven't played Sims 3 for several years now so I can't actually remember how they did seasonal outfits. I definitely remember that we did not get layering as I wanted, and while the situation has improved a little in that respect, it's still not there yet. :(

    Some more ideas for CAS. Once again I'm mainly focusing on toddlers and babies (I'm desperately praying that we'll be able to make clothes for babies).
    Some options that are simple and adorable for many ages.

    But even more, I think the CAS for toddlers in this pack should really make sure they take full advantage of super cute designs.

    A full knitted dress.

    Also, since I hadn't done it yet, I'll post some things I'd like kids to be able to knit. I assume they'll be limited to tiny things, so I tried to find some simple things I could see being added for kids to make.

    I think a super cute family activity would be a older sim being able to knit a stuffed animal, and a child being able to knit a piece of clothing, like a tiny sweater, for the toy.

    I hope they bring back the teddy bears child sims were able to play with from TS3. Loved that some packs had different variations of the beat back then

    I feel like the vibe of this SP would easily fit the Hygge quality in Danish culture. Comfy, cozy, convival. I'm still not 100% sure about it, but I think there are certainly some possibilities. I love the idea of including hot cocoa. Sims could snuggle up in front of the fireplace, wearing knitted socks, covered in a knitted blanket or onesie, and drink hot cocoa whilst reading. Family onesies would be amazing, now that I think of it. And pet knits! Okay, I might be coming around to this... :)

    Also, I work in a library and did finger knitting and loom weaving with the preschoolers and tweens before. Both were quite successful and easy, so including activities all ages of kids can enjoy would be great.

    Yes, I agree with the idea of it being kind of a "hygge" pack to be warm and cozy. I genuinely do hope for the pottery or sculpting. Generally, I'm flexible about most of the ideas that have been suggested.

    I guess the next vote is for the art style. For me that and the votes on the objects in the pack is kind of more interesting than the first vote was. This is because I know it's a stuff pack so it's about what clothing and items that the pack will add to the game.

    I think most of what people have been wanting is in line with what I want but I probably don't want the cliche of a nursing home. Multi-generational including elders? Sure. I do like the woollen stuffed animals that have been suggested.

    If it goes this way, it would kind of build on the wintry aspects of seasons for my average sims.
    Champ and Girlie are dogs.
