Knit! How cool is that! I wonder if they get better the more they do it? So at first they knit scarves and then they knit complicated fair isle sweaters? Oh man...I might have to get that! :teehee:

ETA: I haven't seen them knitting in the trailers, but they do sew!

Hey wouldn't it be cool if they knit sweaters that they could wear?!

That would be a whoot. My son plays The Sims, he'd love to get me into it also.

That's cool. I'd have gotten it anyways. My daughter and I are hooked on The Sims. We have Sims 1 and all the EP's and Sims 2 and all the EP's and some of the stuff packs. Don't have H&M Fashion stuff or Teen Stuff cause those looked boring.

That's awesome! Like I need another videogame to be addicted to...

There's a page in the book Weekend Knitting (http://www.amazon.com/Weekend-Knitting-Unique-Projects-Ideas/dp/1584792914/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1198265815&sr=8-1) that has a list of movies in which the characters knit. Someday I'm going to rent 3 or 4 and spend the entire day knitting and watching movies :thumbsup:

It's about time our Sims had more to do than work and take care of their basic needs. Now, they can have hobbies too!
:)

I used to DREAM of having my Sims knit sweaters to make money when I played Sims Online. It just seemed to make sense to me. I don't know why it took them so long to come up with arts and crafts for the game.

I had suggested to a friend that the Nintendo Wii needs a knitting simulation game.
