But, if there's a hole, it might be a slipped stitch or something like that. I would say if you're not happy, contact the person you got them from and let her know. =)

Yes, I am interested in this as well!
How could you make them on a machine? A sewing/serger machine? I cannot picture it.

I searched her blog for some pics of longies on the needles and found this entry (you need to scroll down):

Definitely hand knitting in progress

Some longies are made on "knitting machines." Some of those machines clip onto your table and you just move a shuttle back and forth (like weaving) to make the knitted fabric. Then you seam the pieces together. I've heard Kozys might be made this way? There's also an Ebay seller I know of who knits longies this way, so that the cost is super-reasonable. It cuts the labor down by a ton, but I think hand-knits are so much better because they're so special

I would love to see a picture. Dropped stitch wouldruin the whle item! A twisted stitch wouldn't (shouldn't) cause a hole. A slipped stitch would definetly cause alot of problems! Have they been washed yet? I'm sorry you are having so many problems!
