What if you had to get up quickly? This just screams "accident waiting to happen". :shrug:

Okay, where are the "You Knit What" gals when you need them??

*snickers*

Nevermind the fact that it takes 7 hanks of Ultra Alpaca. Nevermind the fact that Ultra Alpaca is ~$8 per hank, so you've got yourself a $56 dollar monstrosity...some of those Berroco patterns are completely ridiculous!

Or you could put some soap and water on the floor and use them to mop the floor...now that is an accident waiting to happen. :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

:teehee: I snorted.

I'm just imagining you guys dancing around your house with these things on. That'd make great videos. I think we should have a KH contest. Who can knit the nuttiest thing and put it to use and video tape themselves with it!

First thing I thought was: Wow, that's like some really twisted bondage thing. Like bondage for grandmas. Restricts movement, but its soft and comfy and warm.

At least I wouldn't break my little toes wearing those... my head and every other bone in my body is a serious concern though. :shifty:

That is one of the dumbest things I've seen.. :roflhard: :roflhard:

However..that guy wearing it.. :passedout:

Oh geez, I *SO* want to see videos of folks wearing one on each foot and dancin around the house or moping the floor. I would totally use some cheap acrylic though :roflhard:

Heheheheh...joking! I was thinking, split it in two and you have a great dust mop. :rofl:

I'm thinking of knitting up four of 'em for my kitty to wear. Then at least she can do something productive around the house as she dusts the floor! :roflhard: I guess it would be bad to spray the bottoms with pledge, right?! :roflhard:

What a BRILLIANT IDEA!!

Just think about it - we could make a fortune selling them to golfers - people could practice putting (is that what they call it?)

We could hire them out by the hour over here at the WackyWarehouse - kids would go crazy about them - first one to land a ball in the hole wins a prize!

Your pet hamster could hibernate ...... shabby chic pot plant holders ......

turn them over and you can play noughts and crosses .... the possibilities are mind-boggling.

Yours, truly boggled

Where's the "sheepish" smiley?
Because I actually bought one of these at Ikea last year (for $4.99).
It was an accident, I swear .. I thought it was a blanket that folded up into a pillow, which would be great for long car rides .. imagine my shock when I got home and discovered that no, it was a feet cozy

Hey! I have one of those. My MIL makes them. She made one for my husband and his brother and I mentioned how much I liked it except the fact that it was hunter orange so she made me one. It's the perfect size for wrapping up in the car or napping. I need 2 though :(

I want it. haha. My feet never get warm in the winter! Besides, I could slip out my feet pretty quickly. Although, I have to admit it does look really silly and the price is outrageous!

:teehee: My cat loves my shoes, or anyone's shoes actually, and always tries to crawl in boots.. I'll make 4 kitty size and put her to work cleaning the bathroom & kitchen floor.

Just wonder though how she would get along on the carpet...

ok.. my meds must be making me lol,, I actually was figuring out width & length.. someone put me back to bed..lol :doh:
