Mama Llama takes a peek at Nifty Knitting (cas & build/buy)

A BIG TY to EA, The Sims 4, & the Game Changers Network.

They made it possible for me to bring you this peek  & one giveaway code ❤

I will sweeten the pot with 2 more codes.

At the bottom of this blog, you will find entry instructions.

(Not trying to be mean here but please do not message me about the giveaway if you have not read the instructions AND do not share or publish the answer. 

I will change the question daily if necessary.  Play fair!)

Small confession here.  When I first heard that knitting had won the community vote, THB, I was a tad disgruntled.  It was not anywhere near what I had hoped for.

PLUS I resented the #&@% out of  “now I have something for my elders to do – let’s set them in a rocking chair to knit away their last days” mindset.  UGH!

OK .. perhaps I was feeling rebellious along with the disgruntled.


So when I opened this pack I was not expecting to have much fun with it.

Just git-er done.

When I am wrong I am never afraid to say that I was wrong …

and …

I was wrong!

It is such a cute pack!  The animations (which sadly I am not showing you today – next time in the LP blog) are darling and the crafts are sweet!

Super job devs.

Let’s take a quick look.

I will start with my FAV CAS.  I am not going to show you all the swatches.  Give you some fun discovering those on your own.

Before I go on (and before I forget) here is the code to unlock the tagged CAS items:

cas.unlockbytag SP17

This code is done in CAS and is only good for the sim you have on-screen at the moment.  IT IS NOT A HOUSEHOLD CHEAT. Also, if it does not seem to open right away go back out of the CAS column and reenter.

Bob is so cute in this hair but I will keep him in his curly hair!

The fails are my CAS favorite!  Bob looks so cute in them.

New jeans

LOL the forbidden sweater – I have not learned everything about this yet.  I know how to make one but not about putting the curse on someone …

08-23-20_11-43-02 PM

I do not want to do that to poor Bob.

BUT maybe I can find someone deserving …


But I digress!

Back to business!

Bee is spending lots of time itching – the fail sweater itch like mad LOL

One of my FAV new items are the socks many cute ones.

Child thru adult .. no toddlers.

The only new item remaining is not CAS or debug.

The baby clothes.

I will have more of this in the next blog update (need to have a baby boom)  but here are a few for now ❤

Soo cute.

(The yarn balls show slots.)


To knit you must have one of these two baskets in your inventory.


Knitted items:

To use them without knitting go into the debug menu – cheat code bb.showhiddenobjects & bb. showhiddenliveeditobjects.

I have not figured out how to make this Yarnie on a log yet – will have more info in the next blog.

07-27-20_2-31-03 AM

I hope I got all of the hanging baskets .. there are lots and lots.  I think I counted 54 of them.

  1. This pack is adorable. Also not my first choice (I had chosen Glass Blowing) but I quickly got on board and enjoyed voting and the selection of items that have been included. As a Scrapper (I love Scrapbooking!) the hobby tables and wallboards with their ribbons and glue gun details, make me so happy! Lol I only wish Sims from teen to elder, could actually create crafts at the table.
    Thanks again for your generosity in your giveaways!


  2. Ahhhh. I was like you. Knitting? 😤😤😤. But I really wanted a rocking chair and will always take new bb and cas items which look great, And thank goodness for new baby clothes! Thanks so much for giving us a peek! And for being so generous! Good luck everyone!

  3. Such a cute pack! Love the BB items, sweater fails and the forbidden sweater! Thanks for doing this giveaway! ❤


  4. Wow. Thanks. This is the reason why I am going to buy this pack.When they announced that it’s going to be a knitting pack I lost interest, but thanks to you, I am going to purchase it. 💪

  5. Ohoh, the fails are things of beauty! Gauge swatch? I DON’T NEED NO STINKING GAUGE SWATCH!! And I’m bumping an H hook into the screen at those dropped stitches.

    The huge red yarn devil voodoo doll that (presumably) steals souls is terrifying; I love it. Just looked up whether cats can play with the yarn balls—and they can! Great.

  6. ooh, definitely some of those “fails” and crafty items will fit nicely into a Murky world where people are learning to knit to add some colour to their world. I am guessing that the Mudders will corner the market on Yarn. They are always monopolizing when there is opportunity.
