Really, the sheep need your help! For Contest details click here!

Not on Ravelry? Leave a comment here. Just be sure that a. I can find you again should you win, b. that you leave at least one negative comment (don't make me cry please but helpful suggestions are important) and c. that you comment on at least three aspects of the store (such as banner, pictures, colorways, professionalism etc....)

Hi! Love your bunnies! :) As for the Etsy site, the banner kinda looks like it says "MySkidsmom."

You have a lot of pastels, especially in the roving. Maybe do some more saturated dyeing?

Providing more detail on each item would be great. WPI, weight, type of wool, etc.

Good luck! I think you're off to a great start!

cute bunnies! Ok, i really actually like what you have on your etsy. If i had to try and come up with something...it would be that there seem to be a much more pastel choices vs mid to bright (intense) colors. But i really do like what's there, nice job! ( i bookmarked you!)

Cute bunnies! It's my first time to read your blog and I enjoy your posts here. I'll your posts more often.

The announcement is sweet, but too long. Edit a bit if it isnt' too painful. All that little print on these midlife eyes is hard.
I LOVE that you have sale yarn.
I keep forgetting all my passwords and accounts and I want a way to pay you by check or money order if you would accept that. I'll buy the sale yarn right now if we can discuss this at my email: harpnut@gmail.com
I love the larger weight yarns.
I'd like the bunny picture to be larger.
Love this contest.

That's a fantastic little store you've got going! I love the bright flower you have on the banner, but something bugs me about the title. It's a bit too long, and the script makes it a little difficult to read. You definitely want people to know exactly what the name of your store is, and as is, I had to sit there and figure out, "Mywhawha?" even though I know your blog's name.

I would also talk a bit more about your products in your info blurb.

That said, you have some gorgeous colorways! Yum! I love that you have some nearly-solids and some that are several different colors together.

You have some very nice yarns and rovings. I have only two suggestions:

I assume that each skein is one of a kind, as you don't list how many are available. If so you might consider dying in lots. If this is not the case, you should let us know ho much is available - you could be losing sales from folks wanting to buy two or three skeins for a larger project.

It would be nice if different wieghts of yarn were available in the same or very similar colorways. I'm often disappointed that a color I like is only available in a weight I don't work with.

Reread the roles and saw that I need to address three areas. so I will add that the banner font makes your name loook like MY SKIDS MOM. The 8 looks more like an capitol S.
