Is $9 really too much for my feet to look like Bob & Doug McKenzie, eh?
Toe toques? Take off!
HA my boyfriend does this all the time by simply sliding his sock to the end of his foot because quote “only half my foot is cold” (it does not cost him nine dollars)
I like how they say [at least, I'm assuiming] ‘great to wear with shoes’. …. I think I’ll just keep my socks on.
Look, next time you’re knitting preemie hats and you make them too small, just frog it and start over!
Or make them Hats for Cats! Because the internet needs more pictures of helpless, revenge-plotting animals in clothing.
Oh the felinity!
I have to say, I kind of love this shop.
Those cats look so pissed. If I tried to do that to my cats there would be photos of me being horribly mauled by them.
Great. Give you cat(s) yet ANOTHER reason to kill you in your sleep.
I want one of those for my dog. XD The hats not the cats.
my cat now has a light blue beret! getting her to wear it has been another matter entirely.
I wish I could give this an extra upvote for using “frog it”.
Or find even preermies.
1.) What are preermies?
2.) Are there odd preermies?
They’re the precursor to ermies. Even preermies are divisible by 2, odd preermies are not.
O.K. Why do we need to find them?
Yeah, preemies that are even earlier (more pre.) Shakespeare made up words too, I’m just sayin’.
It’s not like you could GO anywhere in those.
Sure you could!
- Wear them with your fuzzy pink mules while shoveling snow out of your driveway.
- Wear them with your dress shoes to go nightclubbing in the far North.
- Wear them to go tiptoing through tundra tulips.
You could wear them with your house slippers and pj bottoms and Tweetie bird shirt to Walmart at 2 in the afternoon.
True. And desirable.
They could also be useful to Never Nudes who want to get their junk out.
Yes you could.
You would just have to walk on your tippy toes.
To quote my husband, “That’s funking dumb”
Perhaps the socks will take us to… FUNKY TOWN!
…sorry, I ate too much Jimmy Dean’s and now I’m frisky.
Why pad around in socks, when you can almost-not-quite pad around in bare feet?
I love to “with with” my shoes!
I’m making a set of gloves that only cover the tips of your fingers at the second knuckle. The material is cheap, because I just cut the fingers off regular gloves, and then sell the fingerless remnants to weightlifters.
Awesome! I needed something to go with my Glingers!
If fingers without gloves are Glingers, does this make these Tingers?
No no no, THESE are Tocks.
Oh man, those are some hot WISS shears! I heart me a pair of good shears.
I just had to replace my Gingher sewing shears because they can’t cut fabric worth a shit since my husband used mine to cut roses. Why? Because his clippers were ALL the way out in the garage, and the clippers were getting dull, anyway.
He has to sleep sometime…
This is why I buy neon pink sewing shears and HIDE the crap out of them, so my husband doesn’t use them to cut open packets of lunchmeat or ground beef when the kitchen shears are in need of a wash.
My husband understands the consequences of using ANY of my shears for ANYTHING. That’s grounds for divorce! We have scissors all over the house so there is no excuse.
That’s nothing! You ought to check out Fiskars’ spring-loaded shears! You’ll not think so much of clunky, dull, old-fashioned, hand-tiring shears if you do!
Oooooh! Thank you. I will have to get those the next time I come up with a spare $20!
They are wonderful!
The classroom I teach in has a pair of these. I never get tired of watching students come up, spot them, go round-eyed in confusion and then look for some excuse to try them.
I like the idea of the spring-loaded shears but I don’t use my dressmaker shears for much except draping and in fittings. It bugs me how they get caught up on the table while trying to cut fabric. I like the bottom edge of my shears to have a nice curve, like these, and like tailor shears. Now if they sold a spring-loaded tailoring shears… you can bet your hot ass they’d be mine!
i was looking for something in more of an open toed sock look… this is all wrong!
Aww, hell, just do a search for yoga socks on Etsy:
well see. this makes sense now. You wear the toe cozies under your yoga socks!
It’s all about layering.
They’re like dickies for your feet!
That’s weird – for some reason, I don’t even notice the feet.
I am guilty of wearing yoga socks right now, and I don’t even do yoga.
In my defense, mine are way cuter than those. They don’t keep your feet as warm as regular socks, but it does significantly cut down on that gross feeling you get from wearing socks all the time.
I did not know toeless socks existed, and I’m excited. My toes need to be free, man.
No really. I do so hate the feeling of socks on my toes. I’m kind of happy now.
Yoga socks. Who’da thunk it.
If gloves for your fingers are “glingers,” should these be “gloes?”
Japanese sock stores have open-toed socks, socks that only cover toes, socks that only cover ankles, and more! I once bought myself a pair of sparkly blue elasticized bands that were meant for the middle of your foot.
I have a pair of those, too.
But then I would, wouldn’t I?
“Gloes” or GTFO!
They really nestle the balls. Of the feet. So my search continues…
What is it with Lithuanian sellers and their obsession with half-finished knits, lately?
Wool shortage has hit the Baltic states particularly hard this year.
Well, that’s one way to avoid turning a heel.
…and yet they don’t fear the kitchner…or do they? I can’t tell how they finished the toe. Still stupid though.
The toe kind of looks like they just knit a tapered tube and sewed it across the toe.
Looks like a really sloppy “fuck it, just sew it shut” kind of toe, actually.
These’ll go great with my heel warmers and ankle insulators.
Aw, don’t be hatin’, guys, these things are apparently great to with with shoes. That’s just what I’m looking for. I’m tired of withing shoes on their own. I need an aid in withing shoes, and I’m sure half-arsed handcrafts are the ticket. No longer shall I be alone in withing my shoes.
(Seriously, though, don’t with shoes; I’m not sure what it is, but it sounds illegal.)
Aw just saw this… why didn’t it show up on my screen before now? Server must have been busy withing.
“When you with upon a shoe
Makes no difference with what you do.”
I’m excited to learn that these toe warmers can with with shoes. Withing – isn’t that some kind of kinky new foot fetish thing?
I think it’s something like this: http://www.regretsy.com/2012/06/11/keds-are-for-tricks-nsfw/
Foot fetish? Or is it for women who always complain that their guy goes to bed with his socks on and how unsexy that is? Half socksy, half sexy.
It’s a store full of socks only! My Christmas shopping is DONE.
She does make beautiful things. She must be a spinner too because she has stuff made from dog hair yarn. I have never seen that sold commercially.
There may be a good reason for that.
So… I tried your steps in making some of these and now my toes are all over the floor. Did I misunderstand something?
Save the sockmaker, save the world!
You don’t do it to yourself, silly. That’s what your significant other is for…or any other unsuspecting consenting adult you might have lying around…or the neighbor if you can get into his house without his dog taking you out.
From the makers of backwards bride tattoos and handless glove fingers, comes, “Toe Socks! No, not that cute kind you’re thinking of. The useless slips-off-every-30-seconds-and-still-leaves-your-heel-chafed-by-your-shoes kind!”
Adding to the treasury of things that are literally uncomfortable or incorrect if used properly. BONUS, it’ll show up on the Front Page!
The seller is in Lithuania…where it’s REALLY FUCKING COLD most of the time (been there) so how in the ever loving hell did they even think of doing this to perfectly good socks?
It’s all relative – this is what you wear in Lithuania in the winter on your feet if you’re in your flannel pajamas, under a heavy down duvet, with a roaring fire.
And you’re crazy.
I think they’re the cuffs of sleeves that ended up too long. *shrug*
I’d love to see the shoes that these go with.
I imagine they’re just the front part, but laced up like a baby shoe.
I was going to be the “everything else in her shop is so nice” person, until I saw this:
Dog wool? What kind of dog?
Now I’m the “everything else in her shop is so nice, except the dog wool stuff is a bit creepy” person.
Dog wool isn’t that bad. There were, in older times, dogs bred specifically for their wool.
From what I understand, it’s soft, comparatively light, and feels a lot like soft mohair.
Dog wool spins nicely. I have tried to spin almost everything even quilt batting. That produced an ugly white yarn that was strong enough I could use it to tie up my garbage bags.
OK. I admit it.
I have 3 pairs of toe warmers and several skeins of dog wool yarn.
Now I must go join weird-shit-owners anonymous.
Or did I just do that?
How many pairs of toes do you have? If you have more than three, which ones get cold? Inquiring (and slightly damaged) minds want to know.
actually dog wool isn’t so bad, depending on the breed. they usually blend it with either lamb’s wool or alpaca. I’m thinking nicely cleaned samoyed fur would make an awesome skein of white dog wool. Or am I a guy who spins plarn? yes I am..
um…5 pairs of toes, which I believe is regulation issue? Most of them get cold.
It’s a blood circulation problem, which leads to frequent frostbite. Which is doubtless more than anyone wanted to know.
These must be for people who live in old slapstick comedies and routinely pull up blankets just far enough to expose their toes.
It puts its toes in the hose or it gets the lotion again.
Maybe it is a fetish thing. Kinda makes the feet look like woolly circumcised penises. Or maybe I just haven’t had any in a while.
But, what what go with with shoes not?
If Toes Warmers to with with shoes, then Glingers to with with purse? But what not to with with purse not match match shoes? Not out out?
Need need hat too too, because too too cold out out. Hat to with with head, but lost lost head many many years ago.
So it hurts when when I sneeze.
In my family, we’ve always used the expression “toe cover” to mean something utterly useless.
Except that mohair socks usually cost about $30+ (sometimes $50 – $80 if they are hand-knit). So you won’t be saving any money by doing that. I’m not saying that toe covers are a good idea, but cheap machine-made cotton socks (the sort of thing you get at a store) are nowhere near the same thing as mohair, much less hand-knit mohair.
^ step 3
this is a great idea! cause you can sell the rest of the sock as a $12 wrist-warmer!
