well, i can't say that i am angry. but i am disappointed. i spent the better part of my day carting around the dumb laptop and my sweet, teething baby in the sling she weighs nearly 20 lbs so that is not an easy feat! man is my neck shot!!!

i almost had 2 covers, but they were taken by the time i checked out...

oh well, lesson learned- stick with what i know is available and forget about the hype-ers LOL

LOL, honestly, I wasn't aiming that at you to begin with lol. ITA with you entirely.

I have been turned off stalking for a while now, and I have not stalked anyone in forever. I did not stalk today, I will never stalk again, most likely. I would have loved an angora cover but I cannot sacrafice my sanity over it!

Sigh. Does anyone remember when you could just waltz right into KP and order from instock? My very first wool cover was from Maria, a pink cashmere just sitting there.

I'm up again after sleeping for a few hours, because, well, I have a baby and he woke up! I think someone asked about me, and I just wanted to poke my head in and say hi! It's almost sunrise here in Finland, how crazyyyyy is that?

So is VB stocking today?

I got one!! Medium angora blend, serged in cornflower blue. That was my first time stalking for hours and I'm glad it paid off- I would be really annoyed at not getting any housework done today if I had walked away empty handed. Won't be doing it again, though. The stress was terrible!

I remember that Amy. I just waltzed in there and bought an australian wool cover, pool blue outer/tangerine inner. I was so enamored with it, I swore off all wool other than KP. Other than soakers, the only wool we own is KP and I intend to keep it that way. I do feel bad for Maria though, she is probably all kinds of stressed.

I remember, not so long ago when I first heard of kiwipie, she had custom slots open forever! I kept thinking about getting a cashmere one but never did it, and then she really caught on fire (I did eventually get one, but it was much more difficult).

I think this was only a few months ago, too.

She just sent a message to her group saying that she's posting them on her group and you can email her... poor Maria, that's going to be an insane amount of work for her.

I'm glad she posted them to the group, at least she can quit trying to get them on the sight. How frustrating for her though!

I cannot imagine the mess with the emails from the group. Dozens of people emailing about every single cover. That's going to be horrible for her to figure out.

ITA w/you. I just emailed her about 2 covers but I highly doubt I'll get them. I didn't need them anyway, but after reading 20 pages of this thread I need one or two as a reward!!!

Well, I will be the first to admit that I am sad and do not feel dumb for being sad. I got one Kiwi off the TP and loved it-I have a hard time finding covers that fit my baby well. I waited for a whole month for this day. I wasted my entire work day and most of my lunch break. I was not waiting to get the most recent hyena worthy item-I only use prefolds, I am not much of a diaper diva, and I have not stalked anything before-I really wanted it cause it works for us. I am not mad or annoyed at anyone here by any means, but I am really really dissappointed that I wasted my time and that I do not have these covers. There just isn't a substitute that does not also have a hyena worthy stocking nightmare. But, I will say this, I wanted a cover like heak, but with all the pleas she made about not being able to load the stuff, I backed down and logged off. Maybe I would have a cover had I not, but the thought of her bent over her computer after a vacation(Come on, you know how it is when you get back from out of town!) made me sad. Especially since this was probably a shock to her. I wish we had more WAHMS so that this was not an issue. I hope we don't run off the ones we have! I also hope that the next stocking is not posted, lol.


anyone w/ an unwanted med pm me!
