So beautifully colored pants are ugly. Sometimes I think I live in the wrong country.

Good for you for speaking up!

My neighbor makes comments all the time too. Nothing too rude but little digs or backhanded compliments like, "That's cute...it looks so old fashioned. It must be awfully hot and scratchy, she must be sweltering hot in that."

Re: Someone called my ds longies clown pants

my mom has said things like "she must be so itchy" she says it every time she sees DD in woolies, like i didn't hear her last time. i've told my mom i don't think it's itchy or DD would cry, my mom said "well maybe she just can't tell you" i don't think she means anything by it, it just gets annoying sometimes. i just ignore her or correct her when she says things that are incorrect. i've never been told they were ugly tho

some people have mentioned "it must be so hot in those", i just remind them that wool is thermo regulating, isn't it just wonderful stuff!

I'm lucky. I have only gotten compliments. We used wool from day 1 in the hospital and the girls in the nursery gushed over his pants.

Don't feel bad. I'm obsessed and just got some nice yarn to have some customs made up. My husband told me he thinks they are dumb ....... But he doesn't say anything on a daily basis, just when I asked his opinion.

I love his little woolies!!

well said.
i love wool and cd, most people around me don't get it either. They don't dare say it is 'ugly', because they know I made them myself.
