Thanks everyone for your thoughts, support, and advice in reference to my dog. I appreciate it. I have some good ideas to start incorporating this week. I felt I should probably close this thread as I sense drama starting and really was looking for just support and advice. I know animals are close to people’s hearts…definitely mine included so that is why I posted here as I am no expert and was looking for some ideas. Thanks again! Have a great week!

Re: My dog FREAKED out! It was awful…….what to do? (long and horrible for me)
<<I understand some dogs want their space..dog beds are great for that. >>

NO they are most certainly NOT. A dog bed (which we have tons of all over the house) does not protect a dog from a marauding cat, nor from a pushy toddler.
And I cannot believe this thread, in which a person is asking for support and advice, is being turned into a thread for people to judge and bash the way she cares for her dog. If a stranger told you how to raise your KID, you sure would bristle!

This is what I was wondering. 😦 I have no problem with crate training, but if you’re leaving the dog IN YOUR VEHICLE for hours at a time, there’s a problem there. That’s the kind of thing that will get you reported to animal control. If I knew someone at my office was keeping an animal in their car while they were at work, I’d report them in a heartbeat.

Thread is closed mama. πŸ™‚

I already explained that the dog was in the car for only a few hours while I work. Windows open and the car is just a few feet from the front door of the daycare where I work. Doggie can even play in the front yard of the daycare once drop-off time is over. Never bring him to work if the weather isn’t going to be nice though….but he has to be in a crate when he comes with me. I’m not abusing him by bringing him. He loves to come and he gets extra time with me if/when he comes.

He goes in the crate for several hours a day while I am at work. Is out for walks twice and the whole evening and some in the morning. Thanks for responding to this thread but I feel like I have explained why I am crating at this time….am looking for some advice in that area. A lot of dogs don’t even get fed or walked regularly so I don’t feel that I am a bad owner for using a crate.

I am in the midwest. When the weather is good is when my dog comes with me to work. For our area, that is about April through October appx. Sometimes more. The weather is mild in Missouri.


Sorry, but I have to comment on that. You said your dog is in his crate during the night (10pm-6am) and while you work he is in the crate in the car. That means this dog is spending most of his life in a crate. And he is not being with you during the day, he is in a crate in the car. I do not think that this is acceptable for a dog, it is actually not acceptable for any living being. And the excuse that some dogs don’t even get fed or walked is lame, what is that supposed to mean, ‘I am abusing my dog less than other people do’ ?

Your thread reminded me of the one if people could forget their child in the car. It seems that case shows that even two people can forget about their animal for 30 hours.
Honestly, why having a dog when there is actualy no time for it?

Is that how it works? Don’t like the advice or comments, close the thread? Your dog is not with you while you are working, he sits in a crate in a car, your eight working hours (or however many hours you work). The ammount of time your dog spends in a crate (or should we say box since he cannot run in there) has nothing to do with crate training.

    What a fucking baby

  3. monkey says:

    Whoa… I didn’t read the OP… but is she really leaving the dog in a crate in a car in the summer? Is that what it really said?

    That’s pretty fucked up right there.

    I crate trained my dog. But his crate was in an air-conditioned house.

  4. Booyah says:

    That shit is effed up. “Oh I just leave him in the car for a few hours and then lock him in a crate all night.” I would be pissed too. She should give that dog to someone who will actually spend time with it.

  5. Incognizable says:

    poor dog 😦

    oh and let the thread closing power trip begin…..geez

  6. Roxyrocks says:

    I was wondering if this was going to be picked up for the blog πŸ™‚ I didn’t get to read the OP but it sounds pretty fucked up to lock a dog in a car even for a short time and even more so in a cage!

    There was some chick that did that here in Denver so she could go the the American Idol tryouts and the dog died….they are prosecuting her

  7. Roxyrocks says:

    Oh I dont know if it matters but I fixed my name….it was missing the (s)

  8. werd says:

    I love when people give advice about something they have NO CLUE about. Dog beds are not akin to crate-training… idiot.

    If I had that woman’s address, I would report her. You do NOT leave a dog in a crate in a car all day, and then in a crate from 10pm – 6am. That is NOT crate training, that is NEGLECT. No wonder the thing is freaking out… crate training is supposed to be positive and create a safe “house” for the dog to retreat to at night or while alone… not to be confined to for 16 hours a day because it can’t be anywhere else.

    I love how people think pets are like, I dunno, fucking decorations or something. They are just like having CHILDREN… except they NEVER grow up! Would you leave your toddler in their crib for 8 hours a day, and then overnight while they sleep, because they can’t be trusted alone in your house?! How about leaving them strapped in the carseat while you work… oh, but you DO let them out for a walk twice in that time frame. Oh, and the windows are down too! Have you ever sat in your car on a 70 degree, mild day with the windows down?! It still gets hotter than BALLS with the sun shining through the windshield. Yeah, that makes it soooooo much better.

    She needs to find a home for the dog where it won’t be locked up 3/4 of the day. No wonder it has issues. I hope she gets reported to the ASPCA, they WILL take your dog for that. And you CAN be charged with animal cruelty for doing something like that.

  9. insomniac says:

    wow, that is REALLY awful. How does she not see that a crated dog all night and then several hours in the day…in the summer weather…is really not cool.

    I have reported people I have seen with animals left in the cars in parking lots. One little puppy was about to keel over. It was so hot and he was not doing well at all. I called and sat there until the cops arrived. The people came out and yelled and cussed at me…oh weeellll…wanna almost kill your pup, then suck it up buttercup when someone turns your ass in.

    To bad no one who has seen this posters poor dog sitting there in the car day after day does not have enough common sense to tell her she is wrong or report her.

  10. Hexe says:

    Diaperswappers doesn’t care that much about the dog and how it is treated, it is more important to strike the people that commented on this thread and closing it. The op in this thread is not capable of taking critisism, she is neglecting the dog. I bet when she has her baby the dog will be only let out once or twice a day, but it doesn’t matter, because he is crate trained!!!! If we would be talking about a child op would be locked up and couldn’t spred her neglect of a dog advice on ds.

  11. ladylili says:

    I am so glad you guys posted this! I was about to come comment on it. I had a few choice words for her but I decided to be nice.

    werd – I completely agree with you on this one. She wouldn’t leave a kid locked in a room for 30 hours with no food or water. Oops, I forgot? Honestly the post pissed me off

  12. ladylili says:

    Does anyone happen to have a screen shot of the original thread?

  13. amessymama says:

    That is freakin’ ridiculous. Someone needs to start an informational post on what it means to crate train a dog. With links.

    I would, but I know nothing about dogs. Well, except not to leave them in my car all day and in a cage all night. Heck that make me 100 times more qualified than her to have a dog.

  14. DSDM2 says:

    I think it is BS that a MOD is abusing power like this. Maybe when she is offline someone should report the post?

  15. TaraC says:

    This makes me so sad! I didn’t get to read the original thread but from what other posters said this sounds like abuse to me. As someone above me stated, dogs are like children that never grow up, if you aren’t prepared to put in the time and love it takes to train a dog and make them feel loved, then the animal should be taken away from you.

    I have to say that crate training makes me leery and we didn’t do it all with my dog, it seems mean to me. 😦 But I know many dogs who were crate trained properly and seem to be well-behaved and well-adjusted, so there is a right way to do it. It just doens’t sound like the OP is going about it in the right way. Poor doggie.

    My Mood: Who’s responsible for paying return shipping?

    ——————————————————————————–

    I bought 3 diapers on DS from a mama last week. Asked before the purchase if they were knit or woven fabric outers and was told they were knit. They show up and all 3 are woven These woven diapers don’t have as much of a size range as their knit counterpart and I would not have purchased them knowing what I do now. Needless to say I want to return them to the seller.

    Conversation goes something like this:

    Me: I don’t necessarily care for woven outers, that’s why I asked about the fabric before the purchase. Woven outers have a shorter rise and won’t last until PLing. I think I’d like to return these.

    Her: Alrighty!

    Me: What do you think is fair?

    Her: (no response for 2 days)

    Me: I’d like to finish this transaction, whatever that might mean, but I’m waiting to hear back from you.

    Her: Fine. We’re both out $10 for shipping though.

    I guess the way I see it is I asked the questions before purchasing because it was important to me and I shouldn’t be out any money (even return shipping) because the seller really wasn’t sure what she was selling.

    So, my question is, who pays return shipping? And do I get the full refund of what I paid or what I paid less the shipping costs to me?

    I’ve seen differing opinions on this. But, IMO, she pays return shipping. She misrepresented the item. It isn’t what she said it was. Something similar happened to me once. She paid all shipping and I was refunded everything I paid. It wasn’t before some harsh things were said, but in the end, she did what I thought was right and it ended just fine.

    honestly it sounds like she isn’t going to be willing to work with you. I would just try to resell the diapers so that you aren’t out $20 sending them back to her, if she keeps the shipping cost, and just leave appropriate feedback

    She should be responsible since she told you they were knit and they were woven. if you hadn’t asked and wanted to return then you would be but because she either lied or didn’t know it should be on her. but there is a good chance you will return them and she won’t pay you back for shipping.

    When I started reading your post I figured she just might not have understood knit vs woven — but she is handling it like a jerk. I would be really upset to be treated like that after doing *nothing* wrong! She needs to pay shipping back in this case.

    She would be responsible, but IMO Crystal has a better idea. Resell then leave her feedback noting items not as described and the refusal to pay return shipping.

    Actually mama, if you are going to quote me, you better be accurate. You are completely out of line and I was out of town for the holiday weekend. I told you I had no idea what the difference but I THOUGHT they were sold to me as “knit woven” which I see now is completely wrong but I didn’t know AND I told you I didn’t know.
    Please don’t spread lies about me.

    hm… what are the rules on ds about pm’s? I have a pm from a mod and it just doesn’t make sense what so ever. The spelling is off as well as the grammar and I just don’t have a clue what she’s saying lol. If I post it here will that get me banned?

  54. naturalmamadot says:

  55. nobodyuknow says:

    I’m 90% sure DS mods can’t lock or close threads? I think someone like Sally is the only one that can do this? Anybody ask about this? Maybe it was a glitch and her permissions on there.Or the thread was closed by administration until they got some things sorted out?

    #56 I’d just pm another mod and forward them the pm. ‘Course I’m pretty sure members here will be dying to get all the details.

    Seriously, the flowers?

    I’m sorry but people get waaay too particular about stuff like that IMO.

  71. StickFigureSushi says:

    I’m kind of on the fence. At first glance it’s a blatant rip-off of Silly Stripes. But on closer inspection, the stripes are much more varied and she uses some different stitch patterns in it. It’s kind of hard to believe the she just accidentally came up with something so similar, though. My inclination is to think that she saw Silly Stripes and ripped off the idea, only switching out some of the stitch patterns in hopes that no one would call her on it. Or something.

  72. bored says:

    gimme a break. its similiar, that much is true. but seriously, I don’t think its any kind of copyright violation. too many people get their panties in a wad over stuff like that.

  73. eeek says:

    Eh. They’re saying it’s an illegal copy of silly stripes. Which being stripes, in knitting, are of course impossible to trademark or copyright, she has a claim on the name but hasn’t paid to have it officially TM’d so even that is in question, type “silly stripes” into google and they are far from the first product with that name. She can own her pattern, of course, but that’s not what they say is being copied. It’s stripes.

    There are things you can own, and things you can’t. Stripes on clothes are in the can’t category. Our government has been very clear about how they want to stay out of fashion, every attempt to get anti-fashion-piracy kind of legislation always gets shot down fast.

    Very much JMHO- but I think people need to get over this crap & rely on their talent & creativity, not keep beating the dead horse of “OMG she COPIED my design”. It’s the kind of thing that only works on DS, not in the real world.

  74. StickFigureSushi says:

    79, Therein lies the problem that people have with it – you said, “I think people need to get over this crap & rely on their talent & creativity, not keep beating the dead horse of β€œOMG she COPIED my design”.

    That’s the issue, one WAHM is NOT relying on her talent and creativity, she’s using someone else’s as a crutch. That’s not cool. Not illegal, but not really ethical either. And most of us would like to think of the WAHM community in general as a respectful, ethical place I think. It sucks when it’s not.

  75. memyselfandi says:

    ah, I thought it was the flowers, since that’s bodiejake’s ‘thing’ for most of her knits…I didn’t even think silly stripes when I first glanced.

  76. diudiaole says:

    eeek — can you link to your HC?

  77. Cubanita says:

    can’t find her on flickr… do i need to register? :\

  78. piratebaby says:

    I dunno…I like the “knock-off” ones better. I don’t get the big deal about silly stripes. I just looked at her blog and while the knitting is nice and everything, the pattern is actually kinda plain. The Sugar n Spice skirty has lots of different stitches and IMO is more interesting. I’ve thought about making ds a pair of longies with different stitches, not because I’m trying to knock off SS, just to mix things up a bit. It’s dumb that just because 1 WAHM does something that she should have a monopoly on that particular item/idea. Whose to say that her’s are the best, some ppl might prefer that look but done in a a different way kwim?

  79. amessymama says:

    84-I gotta agree w/ you, I like the other skirty better. It looked different to me. Fancier. Prettier. I like how one of the stripe was all swaggy-like. I did not like how the stripes didn’t match up in the back, though.

  80. piratebaby says:

    85- I didn’t even notice the back. I agree, that part looks bad. If she figured out how to jog the stripes better she would have a great product. Definitely fancier than SS.

  81. Mmspirit7 says:

    thing is she’s not the first to do the strips. I know this so she can’t do anything if they don’t like then don’t buy it i love it and if i had the cash i would get it.

  82. me says:

    How in the bloody hell can you copyright knitting texture in a pair of pants?

  83. Mmspirit7 says:

    you can’t that’s the thing you just can think you can your pattern is yours but that’s it. and silly strips doesn’t use her own pattern she uses another that she bought.

  84. laughingmama says:

    Um, doesn’t anyone at DS realize that the whole “silly stripes” idea was taken from a hat in the “Itty-bitty Hats” book? Monica started off knitting those hats before she started doing the longies. So, technically the idea isn’t her’s either (not that textured stripes belong to any particular person).

  85. eeek says:

    diu- this is the only place on the whole internet (hell, usually in my whole life) where I get to swear sometimes & say when I think people are ridiculous. I’d really rather not post it here. Someday, I hope to move on (thinking about another round of grad school) & then I won’t care, but for right now I don’t want people who dislike my opinions to dislike my stuff. I honestly can’t afford that.

    I’m not a knitter, though, if that’s what you’re wondering! I’m barely functional at it, definitely not up to anything I’d sell.

    Anyway!
    If someone else can do it better, good on them. If they can’t, well, no one will buy their stuff, they’ll keep buying the original.

    I stand by my statement that no one can own stripes. And adding textured stripes to knitting isn’t a novel idea, look at the Ravelry project section. Just because someone is the first WAHM to do something in this tiny community doesn’t mean they own it. It reminds me of Alison from AhMay flipping out at someone else using the same seams as she did, while at the same time saying she copied them directly from gymbo pants. She got over that, though, very much to her credit. She did it better, so she was a success.

    I went to design school for 2 years (I had, actually, 4 majors before I just somehow ended up with enough credits to be done, lol), and took a couple classes that talked about the implications of trademark laws. Pretty much what they always told us is -you are only as popular as your next idea, because someone else will take any old good idea and pimp it out for themselves. Get over that & make sure your next idea is as cool as your last one, a one trick pony has no future. I mean, look at ABS. They have the oscar designs in factory production almost by the time the night is over.

    **poof** that didn’t take long

    Yeah that is what I thought. She copied someone else and is trying to say it is hers…how is that any better than what Thereson(sp?) has done except in a much larger scale now?

  89. amessymama says:

    90- I want to know more about the “Itty-Bitty Hat” book. I looked it up on Amazon (OMG the cuteness!!!!), but they didn’t have a pic of a hat w/ those type of stripes. Did they have a pattern that they actually called silly stripes? Why is it never mentioned on DS, if it’s true? It should be.

  90. DSDM2 says:

    Is DS fucking with anyone else’s computers again?

    Everytime I leave a DS page open, my computer starts acting up, like locking on the Caps, and secondary keys and opening all links in new windows, etc. It is getting on my flipping nerves. The only way I have found to “fix” it is to shut down and restart.

  91. piratebaby says:

    hmmmm

  92. amessymama says:

    Thanks. I was just on etsy and found quite a few hats like that.

    Somebody who’s brave should post on DS and ask for spam from any knitter who can make a hat like that. That’s be silly. πŸ™‚

  93. Mmspirit7 says:

    wow now isn’t that something she should be called on her coping to bad ds wouldn’t let it.

  94. laughingmama says:

    #95 Looks like the blog answers some of your questions. The hat is actually called the “Marley” and from looking at the picture of the hat (right near the top of the blog) and pictures of the Silly Stripes longies and the stripe pattern is almost identical. So, who’s stripe pattern is it really?

  95. amessymama says:

    Did anyone notice on the knock-off thread that someone said they’re afraid of knitting Silly Stripe style pants for their own child to use? Then someone said they should not even make them for their own kid. I wish I would’ve c&p when I saw it originally.

    Are they afraid they’ll get knitting needles shoved into their eyes, or something?

  96. JustPeachy says:

    Thats dumb because I thought about doing it for dd a few times and even asked and she said personal use doesn’t bug her anyhow.

  97. piratebaby says:

    yeah, but what if you make them for your own kid and then try to sell them? everyone would be all over you for ‘copying’ her design.

    hmm, maybe I should make a pair and the matching hat from the itty bitty hat book and sell them….if anyone says anything just point them to the book!

    Well, I asked in a round about way about someone making that hat for me. I wanted to post a pic of the actual hat but I didn’t know how, so I posted a link to the blog. I wonder if anyone will pick up on it? We’ll see.

    Meh, textured stripes have been around a LONG LONG time in hand knit garments.

    113, I guess she didn’t think about that before she decided to be an asshat! Wait, why don’t we do a call out thread on her! Stirz us some dramaz! Oh, because we’re grown-ups.

  110. GMLovah! #1 Fan says:

    Just because one CAN rip off a WAHM’s trademark work, doesn’t mean that one SHOULD rip it off. Especially when the WAHM is the only one doing it. It’s tacky and sticks out like a sore thumb. There’s an unwritten code of WAHM ethics that you just don’t do shit like that.

    The WAHM in question (mollybolt or whatever) has been known to do knock offs. She did some absolutely blatant cranky knock offs a couple months ago.

    And also, it’s not only the stitch pattern, but the fact that the skirty looks pretty much identical to the one that the Little Bear Mama did: http://www.flickr.com/photos/littlebearknitwear/3549256286/
    The shape is pretty much the same.

  111. CaliCat says:

    Stripes thing aside, it is a small community and that skirt looks like a rip off, and yes, it will benefit from the work and popularity of Silly Stripes.
    nothing illegal, but probably something unethical in and of itself.

    The book, though, was published in 2006. IIRC.

  118. amessymama says:

    Ummm. Was my thread deleted? There was nothing negative in that thread. Except for the fact that someone else knit silly looking stripes too.

    I only got to see 2 comments.

    My questions were completely legitimate and probably only considered snarky because they started on this blog.

    Dang! I’m kind of mad now. I wanted to know the answer.

  119. newhere says:

    she was talking about the blog w/ the pants. i dont think the ss wahm ever denied being inspired by the hat.

  120. amessymama says:

    Ooops. I see that now.

  121. eeek says:

    I think Cranky monster booty pants are different, if you’re talking about respecting WAHMs & not just legal reality. She actually designed that unique thing. She even said that leg stripes aren’t her issue (IIRC she said, it’s just stripes), it’s the monster. The leg stripes are just how you can tell someone is trying for a monster booty copy, stripey legs under a usually creepy ugly face. In a perfect world, yes no one should copy her monster. But has it hurt Amy? I really don’t think so, because she’s the one who does it for real, the others are not the genuine thing and people want the real ones. Plus most of the copies are completely fugly, because people with creativity and talent aren’t bothering to try to ride her coattails. I think anyone with the money would buy hers. The nasty ones just make hers look better.

    Stripes are stripes though, and silly stripes didn’t design these (as said in the hat & other posts above), she just was the first person on HC to add them on longies. How about the first person who added a pocket to longies, or contrasting hems (the trim yarn hems/waistbands were actually a huge copying controversy at one point, remember? I thought that was silly then too, then it went away.)? First T&T fitteds? There was one. First person to do tunesian? What about fitteds with part T&T, part serging, for a long time that was only fussy territory but now lots of people do it. Did she own that? I never heard her freak out, she was too busy making money & working on her next big thing to worry.

    I guess what it comes down to, for me, is artwork *ought* to be respected, patterns *shouldn’t* be copied- but simple design elements like color, stripes, pockets, hems… those have all been done before.

    Please don’t think I’m defending the skirt maker. I know absolutely nothing about her, she could be mother Theresa or she might eat puppies in satanic rituals. I’m just saying I don’t think anyone can claim to own basic design elements, even morally instead of legally.

  122. amessymama says:

    Apparently, I am a WAHM (or any business) basher. That’s why my thread was removed. Alllll riiiighty, then.

  125. magpiedpiper says:

    amessymama – Anything mentioned on the blog gets deleted on DS, of course. No matter how innocent.

    Also, according to the warning I got from the LD whiny wah-somebody-bought-those-longies-for-a-REAL-baby thread, you cannot post a respectfully dissenting opinion that might cause others to respond rudely, because then YOU are starting drama. Not the other people – especially if the mod is of their same opinion.

  126. amessymama says:

    That stinks! I personally think the info would’ve been very helpful.

    I got one ROFL smilie and one answer (that I saw).

    My question was. If you find a pattern from a book and you’d like a WAHM to knit it for you, do they have to get permission from the writer?

    I got one answer that said all you have to do is supply the pattern. Is that right? Because I have all kinds of knitting books here w/ dreamy patterns that I would love to have made for DD.

  127. knittingfool says:

    If you bought a sewing pattern and fabric and then paid a seamstress to make up some bridesmaid dresses, would Butterick get pissy? No, they sold a pattern and they are happy. It is no different with knitting patterns. If you buy the pattern and yarn, you can pay someone else for the labor. Any HC “designers” who say otherwise are are misinformed.

  128. mom24babes says:

    I don’t see how that’d be a problem…not any different than making it yourself, you’re just paying someone to do it for you.

  129. eeek says:

    Nope Diu, maybe that’s thud πŸ˜‰ whose opinion I almost always agree with completely so I’ve noticed her hints!

    KHW makes me kind of sad. I don’t think of her as drama much, more like someone who’s kind of lost and needs help. I think momtobushbabies or however that goes was her spots/buying account name, you know how that’s different usually than forum or store names. I also don’t think people should leave a – for non-payment, it sucks to re-list stuff but it happens. Neutral would be useful with that kind of thing. I DO wish HC had some sort of BST with caution like CDN does, though; I think KHW comes though with the stuff but it might be a bizarre transaction and people should be warned.

    amessymama- that is a really convoluted area. I’ve had people knit patterns I own, because I love the ideas but my knitting it would just be a waste of yarn on wonkyness. In sewing, even if it’s a pattern that says not for re-sale, it’s OK to buy then use once by having someone sew it for you. Then they are supposed to return the pattern to you and not sew it again. That’s been the standard in custom clothing for many decades and no one seems to disagree with it. Though, ask Alice Starmore if she thinks it’s OK & she’ll sue you just for the question (I believe she may want no one, ever, to knit her things, only to buy & read her patterns as some sort of religious experience). I personally go with the sewing precedent- I paid for the pattern, I get a single viable paid use from it.

  130. Megan says:

    #131-Sweetie Bird. HR goldfish, Very Hungry Caterpillar, etc. Direct blatant copies of original artwork appliqued onto longies – not just a piece of the fabric itself. I doubt HR, Eric Carle’s publisher, or other publishers (isn’t the pig chef from a children’s book?) would be pleased to see that.

    And yes, all you need to do is send the pattern to the knitter. Then it’s considered commissioned knitting. It’s not much different from knitting it yourself, except you’re paying a knitter for their time. Knitting something directly from a book and then selling the finished work for a profit is a no-no.

  131. knittingfool says:

    I guess all those grandmas at craft fairs are in big trouble then. All those booties and toilet paper covers come from pattern books. I read somewhere that you can sell items you sew from commercial patterns as long as credit is given(i.e. don’t claim it as your original work) Why would knitting be any different? The designer owns the written work, not the finished product.

    Not true. As a Mod, you should know this and be more aware

    The package must be DELIVERED for PP to side with the seller. And if it gets lost, that is the seller’s responsibility. Insurance protects a seller. Ebay and PP and now starting to stop sellers from requiring a separate purchase for insurance, it can be included in shipping costs, but it is the responsibility of the seller. The seller is responsible for the item to be delivered in AS DESCRIBED condition, and insurance protects that. (Not to mention inadequate packaging isn’t covered by insurance anyhow.)

    I guess I just figured every WAHM knitter shared the same opinion.

    That even goes for WAHM patterns? I don’t have any of those and I certainly don’t want to take anything away from a WAHM. But say I bought a Hudson Hat pattern, I could send it to a non-licensed HH knitter to make? Well of course I could, but YKWIM.

    I would probably have to swear an oath not to rave it. For fear of the ensuing backlash.

    If you paid for the pattern and the end result was for your own child or a given as a gift to a friend or family member; why should there be a back lash? Oh right, because it is DS and they love to cause drama about things they know nothing about.

    People don’t seem to think that the rules of retail apply to wahms. It is YOUR responsibility(sp?) to deliver the goods, intact, to the buyer. That applies to in person shopping or mail order. And that is exactly what wahms do, run mail order businesses. All this crap about not wanting to go to the post office or not being responsible for items once they leave their hands is exactly that…crap. I won’t buy from anyone who has that litlle blurb on their store. Learn the rules before you open up for business!

    Not sure how 139 was rude? She was right. A FSOT mod needs to understand and know the rules. Got to love how “safe” DS is making things with the mods and admin.

    I’m not into he expensive jeans so I don’t know how to tell. Maybe she deson’t know either? I mean why would she do closeups of so many things if she does?

  140. thewhiteninja says:

    She may think they are real, who knows. But they certainly aren’t worth $75 or whatever. That is the bootleg version they sell at Ross and TJMaxx ,etc.

    eeek πŸ™‚

  142. Kimbella says:

    They’re not fake 7fam jeans, they’re the brand Seven jeans. The Seven jeans were actually around 1st. 7fam tried to sue Seven for copyright several years ago and lost.

    They are definitely not worth $75! Seven jeans can be found new for $30.

    Poo – I left off a letter in my email address!

    More about silly stripes?
    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=826887

    The post was originally titled Size Med Knit Longies Silly Stripes and Black & Green Stripes 30ppd. The seller said in the first message that she knitted them herself, she obviously wasn’t trying to pull a fast one and pass them off as Silly Stripes.

    And then LadyBenz comes swooping in to the rescue of the phrase “Silly Stripes”.

    Am I the only one who things LadyBenz came off as a bitch? The mama changed it as soon as she found out. LadyBitch should have pm’d her first and been nice. The OP said in the FIRST SENTENCE that she had knitted them, she obviously wasn’t trying to capitalize on the name.

  145. me says:

    She needs to go through and tel all of the WAHMs selling “babylegs” that as well then.

    HA! I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought it was a little unreasonable.

  147. me says:

    Well it might be a good thing to let her know but not in the thread itself imo.

  148. memyselfandi says:

    I think they just do that to get kudos from all the woolly peeps. It ups their cool factor or something to harrass others.

  149. Thud says:

    Yay for Monica if ‘Silly Stripes’ is now a household name like Kleenex and Scoth Tape πŸ™‚ A private note would have sufficed, but the selling mama was calling her item by the name of another item which COULD be misleading, and if nothing else, I bet it made people look?

  150. Aj says:

    Speaking of stripes…is it just me, or does something look a bit off about the striped longies in this thread?

    I feel bad for monica. All these self appointed silly stripe police keep dragging her into drama when I know for fact she does not want it. 😦
    She did not even think that skirty looked like hers in the other drama.
    All these “helpful” people probably should try a healthy dose of STFU.

  152. amessymama says:

    158-They’d be cuter if the legs were wider. They almost look like leggings, they’re so tight.

    159-Ya know, I never even stopped to consider what she thought of all of this. I guess I just ASSumed that she shared the feelings of the self-appointed SS Patrol. If I were her, I think I’d PM all of them (especially the LadyBenz chick) and ask them to stop bringing her name & business into all the drama. That would suck.

  153. monkey says:

    Of course she should tell her, the OP apparently did not know, but there is a nicer way to do it.

    #157
    But that obviously wasn’t her intent. She said in the first line that SHE knitted them for HER son. It was obviously a case of not knowing. I have no problem with telling the seller, just with the snarky way it was done. LadyBenz could have sent a pm. The mama changed it as soon as she was told.

  154. monkey says:

    #159 and #160

    Good points.

  155. JustPeachy says:

    Well I dont know but I think it would bug Monica if the term silly stripes was being used. I know she wouldn’t say anything but she coined that phrase and the ONLY reason ppl keep using it is because they are popular. Does that even make sense?

  156. monkey says:

    #163

    Again, I think it’s fine to tell the seller, she obviously didn’t know and made a mistake. I just think there’s a less bitchy way to do it.

    I just really don’t believe the OP was doing it on purpose.

  157. me says:

    I don’t either. If she was trying to pass them off then they’d need to be textured, right?
    IIRC they aren’t in that thread.
