Midday Faire previews

post #1 of 76
Thread Starter 
Well the previews are up for todays stocking and I love the daisy BBH. And those gorgeous KSS pants are $250!!! I am sure they are well worth it, but my word that's a whole car payment.

those are gorgeous pants, they would be perfect for winter in VT. But - not for us . that's got to be a record high price for knitted pants.

I like the sweet pea BBH, very cute!

Those pants are incredible- esp. that the snowflakes are all different. I'd love to know how many hours went into them!

I am still trying to rationalize buying them since we can't use them until next winter. If Mari were home now, I'd buy them in a heartbeat... still trying to rationalize.

They are a work of art!

Kris, are you still going for them?

Holli

I would LOVE to and I was counting on close to $200 but I can't justify spending over $150 just for embellishments.
I think Karen does gorgeous work and I know she deserves to be paid a good wage but I can't do a pair of pants at $250.
Oh well I take solace in the fact that my Storm in the Attic # is coming up:LOL

good luck Holli! If you get them MAri will look gorgeous next winter.
I think I better go cat on a pair pof snowflake pants for HUnter:LOL

Off to knit

think about how cute Mari would be toddling around the house in those next winter. You should totally go for them! Let us live vicariously through you.

Sounds like the perfect holiday gift for you both then! And today *is* winter solstice!

Just helping you justify....

Karen took into account all the time it took to make those, I am sure. The dying, which had to be done very carefully in stages. The longies take much longer to knit, and lots more wool. Those snoflakes must have taken at least an hour each.

It is a large price tage. Consider it the haute couture of the diaper world. Occassionally, I want a really fabulous amazing dress for a big important party. I want something I can wear again, but am willing to pay more than for, say a pair of jeans. I might go to an exclusive boutique to find somethin amazing by a big name designer, or maybe a small indpendent artist. I expect to pay more.

These long pants are out of this world. I am still in the running. From talk here, I might get them too!

I think they are amazing and if I didn't knit I would still probably be trying for them
Beleive me I know how long Longies take...2-3 time longer than a soaker and the dyeing and embellishments take a fair amoutn of time too.
I just personally can't do $250 for pants when really I should just get off my butt and go knit Hunter a pair myself:LOL
BUtu even for a knitting mama it is nice to shop to ya know!
post #15 of 76
Need more reasons to get those gorgeous pants ? It'd be a great way to celebrate Nepalese Independance/Unity Day (today) or Underdog Day (Friday) :LOL

yeah, yeah - I just went and looked up what random holidays are this week...
post #16 of 76
All I can say is WOW!

Ok I'm seriously bummed that there aren't more small BBH wool on there The retro rocket cover we got from Candy is working sooooooo well for us, I was really hoping to get another small cover from her.

Good luck to whoever is going for those gorgeous snowflake pants!
post #17 of 76
those pants are so beautiful

I would be tempted to just hang them on the wall

You're right, Hayes, it is haute couture!
post #18 of 76
Wow! I knew those pants would be expensive, but Wow! Good luck to the mama's trying for them but my DH would have my head!

Love the BBH Sweet Pea cover! I would love to have it but I'm saving up money for another Mr Peabody's design.
post #19 of 76
Cloth Crazy Mom, you can always buy in advance. I am buying for a baby who won't be here until APRIL!!! And Candy's covers are WONDERFUL!
post #20 of 76
LOL yah I understand that Hayes...however...we have already been into larges and are now back down into smalls. It's a very good chance we will never see larges again. I'm looking for covers that will work for him well now.
