First Friday post of the Day



There are somethings that can be knit, that Fireman doesn't need to know about. He would have me knitting these covers non -stop until all the legs in this house were covered..........

good thing he doesn't read this blog much. Much less ever leave a comment. HA!
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

What an incredible idea! Why didn't I think of that after we put in the hardwood floor and had to buy gliders to put under the furniture????? You should copyright that idea/pattern!

Nancy said...

Believe me, I've been tempted to knit some socks for my chair legs. I have felt pads, but they have a tendency to move after a while. Scratches on the floor are not good. :o(

Kathy said...

You call yourself friends? What friends of FIREMAN? I thought you loved ME!

Wool Winder said...

That's one I haven't seen before. Good idea!

Anonymous said...

Awesome idea....pattern please. I like your additional postings! Karen

Karen said...

Sorry, I'm with Fireman on this one too. I LOVE those!!!

Kathy said...

Start knitting!!!

The Fireman

Katherine said...

I love it! I would even put them on Macy (and Max) because our hard wood floors take a beating from furniture and dogs!

Kathy said...

Hey so Fireman left a comment. I knew he was a lurker.


THIS PATTERN IS ON RAVELRY under new patterns. IT is a German? woman's pattern. IT is not mine. :)

That is too perfect! JR is a fanatic about chair legs leaving marks on the wood floors!

Laura said...

What a great idea! I will be casting on to make some of these tonight!

Kathy said...

Turncoats all of you!

rita said...

Of course I love you! I'm a little lost. Did Fireman post?

evergreenknits said...

Oh this is so brilliant! Both the idea, and the comments. I am totally going to do this too!

Elaine said...

OK so I don't get it. Why did you knit them in the first place? Am I just being dense here?

If Fireman wants them, let him knit them and then you can take them off and say the dog ate them or something like that.

I live in an older house (1920"s) which has lovely chestnut trim and hardwood floors downstairs (and pine upstairs). When we bought the house many years ago, we were the second owners and they had never had any sort of coating (varnish, shellac, polyurethane) on the floors so we never did. Hey - they've lasted more than 80 years, I figure I don't have to make my furniture wear socks in the house, especially since they don't do much walking around.

I'm exhausted and punchy. Goodnight.

crap now i'm really pissed i should have thought of these it would have saved my kitchen floor i've tried everthing but nothing seemed to last now i have to knit these unless kathy does them for me instead of fireman i need 24 of them thank you love you

Kathy said...

Okay if you are confused. It is just a joke. There is no way I'd make those. Fireman knew I was joking and I'd never do it. I found them interesting so I posted them.

Remember,, this blog is always about fun and funny.
:)

THe funniest part is that I thought yesterday was Friday. ALL DAY.

If you thought yesterday was Friday, shouldn't have come to work and helped me with the 28-wk. twins?

Sarah, The New Girl said...

haha hate to be a turncoat as well, but I would definitely be making this if I had some pretty hardwood... we're all awful! so sorry!

rita said...

Not a problem, dear; I've got The Stupids once again. I spend far too much time trying to figure out things that should be obvious.

I still think I'll make these some day.....

Emily said...

That is fabulous! I may try them for the kitchen chairs.

Jennifer said...

OMG - those are fabulous. BF would love those if he saw them. Maybe I'll knit up hundreds of them for every chair, leg, table, etc in the house. He might actually like it. It really is a brilliant idea. Teehee.
