I bought a soaker from her a few days ago. It just arrived and it is very nice. The knitting is very tight and though it is acrylic not wool, it seems really nice. I cant try it on my dd yet because it is a large (she is currently a medium). I bought it for when she grew out of mediums. I don't know why people don't buy from her. I'm planning on buying again. By the way, I got my soaker for super cheap because I was the only bidder.

I almost wish someone would email her and clue her in - I think if she was knitting wiht a better quality wool (or just wool in general lol) and had some better color selections they would definitely sell better.<br><br>
I hate to see such a prolific knitter not knit stuff people buy, kwim? :LOL:

I have noticed a lot of those pants on ebay but havent ever looked at them. I feel like since I knit, I really can t justify a bunch of wool purchases unless of course it is something incredible <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Maybe people see her feedback as not that great so they stay away???

I've looked at her pants and was tempted to buy a pair but the rise on most of them is way to short. Most of her rises are like 15" and thats on a large pair of longies.

eBay FB is almost ridiculous. That FB is so not clear, I would ignore it.<br><br>
Not to mention, the one neutral is for a poorly packed book?!? WTF? Packages are ripped all the time, and it is a book. I swear, this is why selling on eBay is horrendous sometimes....Anyone can bid.<br><br><br>
Anyway, re the pants: all the new FB is good. No complaints really. Except for complaint about poor English (some people really are nuts sometimes b/c that is important....can you not just state the facts as in received item, not what it should be, received refund. Period.).<br><br>
I would be curious to know what kind of wool....more thorough descriptions would be helpful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
She does have a 100% cotton diaper pants listed, which would not work. Maybe someone should gently let her know the ins and outs, perhaps <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> I wish it was wool....I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> the blue sweater/pants set. I might try em just for a PJ set <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
They would be a good item for a mama wanting to try inexpensive longies though!<br><br>
If the superhero looking pants were a large, I might try em <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Oh and I prefer a longer inseam. 10" is kind of cutting it close, IMO

yeah, I think she just needs better info on what type of wool and sizing, kwim? so who is gonna do the good deed? :LOL<br><br>
oh, and her feedback would not stop me from bidding - I agree, sounds pretty whacked to me.

<div style="font-style:italic;">There was a thread on here not long ago.. darn it.. now I have to find it! Someone bought a pair that was advertised as wool and it turns out they were really acrylic. The English skills are a problem if she is not advertising the product properly; it can hurt her business.</div>

I saw the FB which says essentially that. But I would assume the best, and that she made an honest mistake. She fixed it right? I guess the fact that English is the 2nd and 3rd language of my entire extended family on my SO's side, it bothers me people assume that it is her language skills. People make mistakes. Native English speakers do it <b>all the time.</b> She may have simply reposted an auction, and missed that word. Could be a non-lanuage related accisdent.<br><br>
She made a mistake, she fixed it, what does that have to do with her language skills? As long as the communication was made, I just think it is a moot point.<br><br>
We have all made mistakes, and she made one too...weird to me that is the assumption that is all.<br><br><br>
ETA: After reading the PP post <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> , I think if she is constantly doing it she should know what she is selling (she lists the kind of wool in some and not others) and be forthright. But other buyers seem happy so they cannot all be acrylic can they? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br><br>
If she just stated the yarn content every time, she would be good.

Oh mama, not trying to argue! Just trying to defend a mama who cannot otherwise defend herself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> I hate to see her lose business for the wrong reasons (kind of like on another well known knitting board <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> where a lot of people ask if a website ships yarn slow all b/c of a period during hurricanes where shipping was slow, kwim? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> )<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

ITA. You are definitely right. I ETA the PP that if she is making a habit of it then that would be the problem. One feedback would not make me think this that is all!!!! Four or five, sure, but not one <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I did email her, and let her know her stuff was super cute. And I loved it, but asked if she ever made them a bit bigger w/ a higher rise and longer inseam. I also asked her what kind of wool she used on them all.<br><br>
I also told her how much I loved the cotton set, and I do <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> But it would not work as a diaper cover for us(but it would make excellent PJ pants or non diaper pants).<br><br>
I did not tell her anything, just asked though! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Mostly compliments <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

that's just it, I'm not wanting to take apart this mama, I want to help her! lol, and benefit with some new wool....<br><br>
hmm, I think I'll email her and ask if I can send her my own wool and measurements.....if her auctions for finished product are this reasonable, surely the customs are too?

I didn't think there was anything cut throat about this thread. I think it would be great if our community could help improve her product. It sounds like her skills are top notch. A few suggestions could help make a product that is truly in demand.
