I love their things, but I think they are way over priced; and I've never bought anything from them, nor do I plan to.

With anything in life, people are willing to pay something even if they technically can make it themselves--like this sweater. My question is, are they even using a luxury yarn? Or it is basic yarn and the reason for the $$$ is because of Anthropologie's regular jacked up pricing scale?  Huh

I don't really like the colors they have put together for the sweater.  It does say the sweater is handknit...

Hand knit or not, I still think stores like this over charge. Half the time the money doesn't even end up in the makers hand, but rather the guy who owns the whole company.

I still don't see how this could cost so much. I don't consider myself a fast knitter and I know if I were to knit this with that bulky yarn it wouldn't equate to 200 dollars worth of time.

Not to be rude or disrespectful to anyone who sells, but sometimes I see hand knitted items sold online by just regular ol' people for a lot of money. Maybe I am just different than most but I would rather sell a product of mine for the price of yarn plus a little for my time rather than sell it for more than it's worth

Oh man, I was trying to convince myself I didn't need Twinkles Big City Knits, but after seeing all those gorgeous FOs on her website... maybe I do!
