I noticed that too -- the one I got from the ebay auction, the legs are a bit too big -- still works. But with the custom ones she makes them to fit him so I am much happier with those.

It's too bad his coat blends so well with the rest of the soaker, he's hard to see but he is cute otherwise!

I just have to add, this one (which was linked already) looks like it stuck a paw in a light socket... Good detail though.

I am almost hesitant to post this because I want the soakers to be mine, all mine, LOL, but I had to, I got this one from her a little bit ago:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN%3AIT&rd=1

It is so nice. So soft. Fits great. So WELL made. Great invesntment and SUPER quality! I could tell by looking at the other soakers w/ out leg ribbing that the legs would be too big, but these are perfect!

I never cared for any of the animal ones but I have a striped green one with this gorgeously knit drawstring with little (looks like) 3 leaf clovers at the end! The wool is SUPER soft and just gorgeous. I love the fit on Braedon. Ill def buy more from her, the price is def right, but I have to agree, I so not go so much for the animals. If she had her knitters make all stripes and solids, she could make a fortune, I think!

Maybe there is something wrong with me, but I really like that dog one. He is so scruffy and happy looking. Wouldn't fit my littlun or my bigun though.

You guys are so mean :LOL I have one that is just variegated wool - it is in rastafarian colors . It is AWESOME, I have to say - it is the only soaker I have where the waist actually stays tighter than the body after a few wears. The fit is great, the wool is soft, the knitting is perfect and the price is right! The leg holes are generous but that doesn't bother me at all as Eliza wears fitted diapers under it and nothing is escaping!

The animals are a little.... unique, I will admit.

XOXO

Yes, there's something wrong. Something seriously, terribly wrong. You may not like that soaker.

I love my Hello Kitty one. I just ordered 3 more BJM's one with the bunnies on white, a purple one with white trim stripes, and a pink one with dd's name in purple. I can hardly wait to get them! I really want one in the same yarn as the "naughty elephant" but without the elephant! He creeps me out :LOL

She's building the site now - I lost the link, but will try to find it. You can email her and ask for it - it is really more of a gallery than a typical storefront.

Butterflymom - you asked what I like about her soakers... the yarn, first and foremost. There is nothing so soft!! It is very fine and pills easily, so you need to be forewarned about that. But for the price and availability, I don't worry so much about them getting torn up. They are such a tight knit that they really hold their shape well. They dry very, very fast too. The fit is excellent on my son (who has a skinny waist, high rise, and huge legs). She ships out immediately and always has something available... hmm, what else... I like the soakers with drawstrings best of all, but I like the rolled leg edges best. And I saw you have a custom order with her -- may I ask what she is charging you for longies? I may go ahead and get a few for winter!!

I'm so excited to see her getting so much business now!!

Ok, found the link. Hope she won't mind me passing it along - it's just a gallery so far.

I the little fluffy doggie!!! He's CUTE!! I hadn't seen it or I might have had to order it for Libby, but since she's got 2 new soakers I made this week and 2 more 1/2way done, I can't justify it. But that's cute! Of course my daughter is obsessed with doggies

Some of her newer styles are really classy though!

ROFLOL!!
Now my toddler is worried about me. "mommy! you o.k?"

too funny. Those are some strange animals for sure, but I think she's been checking out some other soakers and has started making some very attractive designs.
I don't like when all of the decoration is on the front - but that's just me.

Okay this one says "Deer"... what is that Rudolph or does he have a sight spot in the middle of his forehead??

Some of the animals are cute... some are interesting.

What kind of pricing are her custom orders?

This is the most fun I have had all day, Some of the animals are really freaky. http://members.cox.net/ldbcc/ this page has the "dinosaur" labeled squirrel and the actual dinosaurs are quite cute.
anyway, I had seen lots of these on ebay and wasn't sure of the quality, but I think I will try one out

For all of you getting customs from her, how are her custom prices? I have 2 of her regular soakers (the dinosaur and striped) that I got off of the TP and I love them!! So soft and they fit DS really well. I would love to try a custom if the prices are as good as the ready-made on Ebay.
