@natureluvrI agree with @TheMemphisVette -  it's a clever play on words.  

 

It might just have sailed right over my head -  (pun intended)

Apparently it sailed right over the OP's too, LOL!

Thanks for the "heads up"; I hadn't seen those pieces 'til now.

@natureluvr  Play on words, sales strategy, and no need to take is so seriously.  Lighten up.  I know that when we type something on here or anywhere, we sometimes do not catch errors; but, if you are going to complain, please make sure that you have checked your words carefully as you have some typos in your post (and I might have some, too!).

I was  checking our the new line called Tara.  I was browsing through just out of curiosity. I did a double take on the description of items ( a boat, seashell, fish shaped)  as Knotical.  What?!!!!  Its Nautical. This quality?  Just plain sloppy and lazy. Not th image I believe a company should portray.  Does non one check before it is posted


Funny, your post is loaded with typos and errors, and you’re being critical of a company that created a word for advertising purposes?  When you chose your membership ID, you didn’t spell nature lover correctly either.  Did you use spellcheck?  It looks to me as though you wanted to make it cutesy and clever the same way Tara did with Knotical.

Pretty obvious this is a play on words given the pattern has a knot design. I really like it and now have the serving boat in my wish list. Tara at Home Knotical 3-qt Serving Boat - H317993

 

 

But I can't agree more with your last sentence..."non one" seems to check before posting.

i am really liking the knotical pieces also. i want this, the platter, and the set of three sea creature bowls. not sure if i will get them today or wait for a free shipping day.

Re: Does anyone proof read or know how to spell?

You have two errors in your own post.  What I think happens is spell check tries to read your mind and the wrong word gets typed.  The Knotical is a play on words.

@sunshine45, hope you didn't wait for free shipping on that serving boat like I did. It's now showing as "not available." Geez, that was fast! Bummer.  Woman Sad

Re: Does anyone proof read or know how to spell?

There are times when I go back over my own posts I think "what is the matter with that woman and her fingers !" Smiley Happy

 

I heard in a sermon once that when you point a finger there are 3 pointing back at yourself. 

 

I also think the knotical was an advertising ploy.
