I have never bought a crochet soaker but this looks so nice to me! Is anyone familiar with this maker or this product?

Well I like it. I bet it would work superlatively and also be cuter actually on the babe. I don't know that seller but I have been eyeing some of her auctions lately too because I am interested to try something crocheted....

I have been corresponding with her via email and she is a SUPER NICE lady. I won a blue soaker for the babe on the way and am working with her on some shorts she had up, but were not in our size.

As soon as I get our things I will post more info and pics

All of a sudden I realize what a bozo I am to draw any attention to it!

Nooo, you don't like it, it's just plain uuugggllyy, would never fit your babe, comes from a cigar-smoke-filled home...

I think it is really sweet! It looks like it would stop any leak!

I think I won a pair of pants from her on ebay about 6 months ago. The name was Black Sheep Crossing. I am selling the pants on the tp cause they are too small on dd now. I really like crocheted soakers and I have 2 of them. The only criticism I have on the pants I have is that the crocheting is looser than I would like - the holes can stretch bigger than on my other crocheted items. They still work it is just not as cosmetically desireable. This could just be a problem with the pants I have and not the rest of her work.

I have a soaker I got from her just 2 weeks ago! It is VERY cute, and fits my baby very well! I have nt had any leaks with it, it really works great!
Great price too, so I would say go for it!

I finally got my new camera after my other one died, so I will snap some pics of my son in his tomorrow!

I emailed her about a custom because the measurements were not quite right for DS either - short rise, long legs. Give her a shot, she is a GEM!
