Does it make sense to consider contract positions when one has a full-time/permanent job?

I have been offered a couple of contract positions that will increase my salary from 70K to (hourly) equivalent of 100K. I have said no in both occasions but the longer I go without getting a job offer from a permanent job the more impatient I get. I am vastly underpaid in my current position and the opportunities for growth are limited (actually non-existent). Also I am not learning anything in my job and I feel that the long I stay the harder it will be to get out. Is it crazy to consider leaving a (very) stable position but non-rewarding position and accept a better (but much riskier) position in this economy?
