*hehe* No kidding.. they're gorgeous, and I'm sure with the amount of time and effort they're worth a high price.. but hubby cringes if I show him a CD related thing that's over twenty bucks. :LOL I think he'd pass out cold if I showed him these... Hmmm, or maybe I could show him these to prove that the other prices aren't bad? *hehe*

I think they're beautiful too, and obviously took a lot of thought and work. I can't afford them, but I sure do think they're worth it!

Tose snowflakes along probably took Karen a good hour or more a peice not to mention the dyeing and knitting.......work of art!!! You cannot put a price on that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Agreed! No way to put a price on all the care and thought that went into those. Aside from the knitting and embellishing time, I can't even imagine how much work went into transforming the pics of snowflakes into the charts to embellish from. Truly amazing work. Everything about those is spectacular.

I'm sure it was a great amount of work and they are beautiful. I can not justify spending that much money on longies.<br><br>
I wouldn't spend that much on an adult item for myself, yet alone a growing baby!<br><br>
I don't mean this to insult anyone. It just doesn't seem practical to me.

WOW! those are SO pretty! Sometimes I think longies with embelishments are just too busy to look at ya know? But these.. oh man.. they make my heart go pitter patter! If whoever gets/got them gets bored with them, you can always gift them my way.. they are too small for my dd, but I'd MAKE them fit <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> She'd be wearing them as capri pants in the middle of the summer *LOL*<br><br>

I'm not one to spend much money on any item of clothing....but I think it's great that there are people who can, because stuff like that deserves a nice price! Karen said she spend a lot of time on those, and with her eye for design, it *is* hard to put a price on something like that! I don't think I've ever seen anything done by KSS that looked "busy", yk? The embellishments are always perfectly balanced!

I think of them as a piece of art. Really.<br><br>
Practical, sure! Pants, PJs and diaper cover all in 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>
I mean how many people decorate their homes with art that just sits on a wall or a shelf? That isnt "practical" YKWIM? I'd much rather have something pretty to touch and wear.<br><br>
I mean, in all honesty, if we all wanted practicality, we'd use recycled sweaters. They work just as well and beautiful (hand-dyed, hand-knit, embellished) pants.<br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">Disclaimer: No offense to those who have art on their walls, just making a point <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"></span>

I have a 400 dollar painting on my wall right now. Do I like and love it? sure! Do I need it? no. But! Does it make me smile and brighten up my day? it sure does! I just know the mama that gets those longies will smile every single time she looks at them. They are gorgeous and would make a wonderful addition to any wool wardrobe. If I had the cash I would have paid more than that for them.<br><br>
I am very thankful that the money from those longies went to a wonderful wahm instead of wal-mart etc! We are keeping the money within our community and helping one another! What a better way to enjoy the holiday season <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Tammy, well said. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/clap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="clap"><br><br>
Karen's work is absolutely incredible. I actually have the $$ right now (Xmas presents) but ufortunately we are not doing cloth right now so I could not justify it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I just wanted to make sure that I posted on BOTH threads that I think that those longies are stunning. They are among the most beautiful I've ever seen. If they were within my means, I would have gladly bought them. And I wouldn't feel guilty about it. Because I'm a Libertarian. So there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mischievous.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="mischief">

Another thing to remember is that she had to knit them up - then have the nerve to dip finished knitting in DYE. It could have been a failure and all that time would have been wasted. So you're not just paying for her time, you're paying for her experience.<br><br>
They are impractical but hey why not?<br>
I think hyena items go a long way toward keeping cloth diapering interesting and fun for those that *might* not cd otherwise.<br><br>
Oh and I'm not a hyena but I like to watch. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Shoot I haven't had a $250.00 garment since my wedding day and that was a looonnnggg time ago lol.<br><br>

Those are absolutely beautiful! amazing. I love them. But we don't have 1 pair of longies, and it's probably best if we don't test the longie waters with a $250 pair!<br><br>
Isn't she reducing the price in $10 increments? or, are they sold even as I write this post?
