What a great idea! I thought they were a joke when I saw the photo, it's really cool that they work. Can't believe you didn't get a snow day though, where do you live? We're in Sussex, and we're off tomorrow too!

This is amazing, could have done with some of them today, most of the schools where I'm from in the UK are closed, but I work for the NHS and they can't close hospitals so I have to go in and the hospital I work at doesn't believe in gritting it's staff car park so it's a nightmare walking to the main entrance. And me being me....well I'm clumsy at the best of times

well i reckon pretty much any loose weave granny square would work, or even hexagons etc. so long as it is done with a smaller hook than usually used for the size of yarn, and it's got some natural fibres in it so it will felt a little.

and i'm in basildon, essex. my mum is in colchester, north essex and she's got a snow day tomorrow!!

Awesome! Have you tried them out yet? I want to know if they work! We're not supposed to be having a snowday at the library where I work but it was totally impossible for me to get in (it's 35 miles away and no busses). Great idea!

Fantastic idea! I had so many problems with the ice last year, I'm just too clumsy to stay upright. If only I could crochet... I think I'm going to have to find a way around that Smiley

I'm in South Woodham! You're practically right next door. No snow day for us (we both work in London and commute), but I'm home sick so get to watch the snow fall (although it's cleared now).

Mrs Flibble, I love you. We have quite a bit of snow where I am in Kent and I'm dreading the day the snow clears and leaves just the ice like it did in December, the 5 minute walk to the station took over quarter of an hour that week.

We have the chains for boots.  I found them when I was getting my car fixed at Les Schwaub.  This is really cool!  If I had known that fiber would have done the same job I would have done this instead. 

I may still do them.

Awesome!
