here This woman is going to make a fortune she is selling loads of them ?

Habbibu Fri 05-Sep-08 14:13:44

Good heavens. Do you think they are knitted out of gold spun by elves?

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 05-Sep-08 14:14:50

Selina Scott's are cheaper

(pssst don't think I actually bought any, it was in the Times yesterday)

Habbibu Fri 05-Sep-08 14:16:59

Ah, but did she "knit them herself" Boys? Because clearly that's what you pay the £91 premium for.

mustrunmore Fri 05-Sep-08 14:18:00

What? What did imiss? blush There's no way its £98 BIN.

Lilyloo Fri 05-Sep-08 14:18:47

How much is wool these days ? hmm
I am seriously reconsidering going back to work and getting my nan to teach me to knit wink

Might get ds 6 a pair for xmas but that would be all his xmas money gone!

southeastastra Fri 05-Sep-08 14:21:07

odd, she has tons for sale too, very fishy

Shoshe Fri 05-Sep-08 14:27:20

Everything she has for sale knitted is £98.00 grin

HappyMummyOfOne Fri 05-Sep-08 14:32:11

Mmm as if you would pay £98 for a pair of baby mittens, one of which is guaranteed to be lost on the first outing.

The yellow socks are awful, cant see them matching many outfits.

Wonder if she has actually ever sold any.

Coming by superfast mail if it costs that much to send one pair of socks smile

Can't believe it seems more lucrative than her original perfume selling hmm

<gets out knitting needles>

expatinscotland Fri 05-Sep-08 14:39:40

baby socks for 5-6 year olds?

NutterlyUts Fri 05-Sep-08 14:43:04

I have asked her if the £98 is a typo

LackaDAISYcal Fri 05-Sep-08 14:43:51

Notice though that she doesn't actually say you get a pair....making it an even more lucrative business idea grin

<sharpens knitting pins>

southeastastra Fri 05-Sep-08 14:44:20

the baby hats are made from rare lambswool, but still confused grin

LackaDAISYcal Fri 05-Sep-08 14:47:57

My godfathers she must be a human knitting machine.

hand knitted my arse!

Can you find completed listings from a particular seller? It'd be interesting to see whether she has actually sold any.

mustrunmore Fri 05-Sep-08 14:51:13

Well, theres no feedback for anything knitted on the 6 most recent pages (yes, I was sad enough to look!)

And the socks listed as 12-13yrs in the title then say aged 3-4 in the description hmm

And is 'bron' a typo, or is it some flashy type of jumper I dont know of?!

cremolafoam Fri 05-Sep-08 14:51:30

is that for 1 or a pair
do you get the whole batch of 14?
can you get them in better colours or are we stuck with cat sick jaune?

LackaDAISYcal Fri 05-Sep-08 14:51:32

There is no way that that baby hat is handknitted. It looks like cotton from the picture. This has got to be a scam of some kind.

cremolafoam Fri 05-Sep-08 15:00:21

look she has actually knitted some and then she must've got bored and gone to poundstretcher for the yellow ones

mustrunmore Fri 05-Sep-08 15:05:31

Come on, I just wanna know which mnetter listed all this for a laugh? And why on earth do it? There's no way this is for real.

southeastastra Fri 05-Sep-08 15:44:15

it's really strange, maybe she meant 98p!

must have cost pounds to list them

SparklyFairy Fri 05-Sep-08 18:53:37

She must know something we don't! Like anyone would spend £98 on a sock!

Flibbertyjibbet Fri 05-Sep-08 19:04:41

How bizarre.
Sometimes when I see things like that I wonder if the item is some kind of code so you get in touch with seller for something else thats dodgy.

I was once searching for shoes and came across someone selling some shoes for a huge amount buy it now. 'well worn shoes' and some VERY dodgy pics of the shoes being worn on feet - the persons legs were at, lets say unusual angles....
