Daft, I know, but….

Daft, I know, but this solves an annoying little problem I have in the car.

De-icer sock

Interesting crochet item………..

‘But what is it?’ I hear you cry!

Why, it’s a de-icer sock.
A de-icer sock is a useful item to stop the annoying metal-on-metal clang that happens when my de-icer rolls off the back seat of the car and crashes against the metal bars beneath the passenger seat, continuing to do so around every bend of the remaining journey.

I stopped short of adding flowers etc.

My OH asks, ‘why don’t I just keep it in the boot?’

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. What a wonderful idea, the colourful cosy cover will also keep your hands a bit warmer when you reach into the cold car and grab the cold can to de-ice your windows on those cold and frosty mornings.

  5. It’s a great idea and I think it should have snowflakes on it too. It will definitely keep your hands warmer.

  6. What a brilliant idea. I hate the tin rolling around in the car and keeps your hands a bit warmer.

  7. I think it’s brilliant and definitely needs a bit of embellishment. As for the OH – he’s male and doesn’t understand these things 🙂

    • He said to me,’what will others think of an aerosol in a sock on the back seat?’ I’m not at all sure what he was getting at. Do I care what others make of an aerosol in a sock? No. And I can’t imagine there are many back seat stalkers out there.
      Men!

  8. I think it’s a great idea and it will brighten your day everytime you use it. I’m all for the embellishment if it doesn’t make the de-icer harder to use.

    What a brilliant idea. It’ll also stop your hands getting cold as the cans of de-icer can be freezing to hold xx
