I contracted to have her knit a pair of longies in March. Got them back perfectly in like 3 weeks. Hired her again in May since she needed money bad, so i paid 90 dollars plus the yarn. Its now 7 months later and I have no longies. its excuse after excuse after excuse. I was in her town this last black friday (out of town visiting family) and we were supposed to meet up. The day before she texts me and says she's still not done. I give her a final ultimatum and said to mail them out monday finished or unfinished, i dont care anymore, i just want my expensive yarn back. Its now thursday and I dont have the package and I know for a fact it only takes 2-3 days to ship from her area to Florida. I've text her 3 times and no response.

That sucks!! I'm sorry your having such a rotten experience especially since I know you personally knit beautifully! !

Can you share the knitters name if they are here so we know to stay away from her?

No, she can't share the name. She can alert a Mod though.

OP, I'm sorry, that is terrible! You can get the police involved though, if you have a paper trail. Or maybe just tell said Wahm that you will be involving them?

I've had that happen to me before. I did manage to get most of my yarn back. I happened to know she kept enough for a NB pair of longies though after I saw another mama selling them, the yarn was hand dyed by me so I recognized it *sigh*.

I'll have to see if she does business on here to alert a mod. I do see FSOTs knit by her in previous threads, so maybe she does.

Even if she the transaction wasn't on here but she does frequent DS - the mods can help you.

Contact them.

I had a SPOTs trade/purchase go badly and the mods here looked up her information only to find that other mamas were having issues here too - they emailed her on all our behalfs and marked her avi accordingly.

I had the same thing happen to me with a WAHM knitter before. I guess there are just bad apples in every batch. Sorry you are having to go through this though.

Yikes! I'm so sorry!
I'm wondering if this isn't the dying/knitting WAHM that A LOT of us know scammed people this spring (specifically April/May) and has since disappeared(or at least stopped responding to contact. She's around and publishing copy-cat knitting patterns and deleting the comments outing her fraud, but she's poofed from here, HC, etc). :headscratch:
