I posted this in the links forum, but I'd love some constructive feedback.  I am new to this sort of thing - ecommerce software will be added in a few weeks when we have more good up.  But all the links work, so for now please let me know what you think.

Thanks so much!

howdy! i agree the big screen size is a bit off-putting but if you reduce that and like the previous post suggests, add a few more photos to draw people in, i think your site will work fabulously. also, as someone on a 12" monitor, i would suggest shrinking down the photo of the model wearing the sweater a bit (although, by golly, both the model and the sweater are gorgeous!!). if you do end up adding more photos, you might want to try posting your pictures as "thumbnails." when a user clicks on a thumbnail, it will bring them to a bigger version of the photo. this way, you can put a few more pictures on one web page without it looking too crowded (am i even making sense?). regardless of all my gibberish, i think you are off to a great start...

Thanks for the feedback!  I think you're right about the thumbnails - good idea.  I just wanted the front page to be big to get people's attention.

The scrolling size thing - I have to look into that.  I know what you're talking about but I don't know how to change it.  I'm sure my more computer savvy friends will know. Smiley

The pictures are forthcoming - I did add new items in clothing and knitwear.

Okay, so this is reeeeally knitpicky, but on the five W's page, you switch from third person to first person back to third person and back to first. As I read it I wondered if
 
a) you are royalty of some kind?
b) perhaps there are several of you living in the same body?
c) you have a mouse in your pocket?

Go with one or the other.

It's all true.

Lol, fair enough.  Some of the stuff is done by just me, and some of the stuff is a group effort.  Thus the confusion.  But good point, change in progress.

Alright, added thumbnails, graphics, etc.  More content to come soon, but so far, much better. Smiley
