A Dutch designer is selling "knitted boyfriends" on line. Noortje de Keijzer, a 26-year-old designer based in Utrecht, Holland, created two "knitted boyfriends", Arthur and Steve, when she was (obviously) very lonely. The cost to own one? 750 Euros or $1,028.

You know, if a guy did this....

Here's the story. Below is the short film she made about how great it is to have a full size yarn-boyfriend. The video is extra weird because they dressed up an actual guy in "yarn-skin" to play the part of the yarn-boyfriend.

If you do end up buying one of these - first, get help. Second, promise me - if you take him to your family reunion this summer to meet Grandma, send me video. Thank you.
