Craftzine reader Helena was at the hairdressers and flipped through a recent Lucky magazine to find this bizarre and fun site, Net Granny. If you are nana-less, can choose your own Swiss grandmother to custom-knit you a pair of socks! I love that they will also let you know the sock-waiting queue for each grandmother.
From the Luckymag site:
This ingenious site lets you choose a real-life Swiss grandmother to custom-knit you a pair of socks. Click through photos and select a crafter (we’re especially fond of sweet-looking, silver-haired Annie, who says she knits to stay awake while watching TV), place your order, and then wait a few weeks for an airmail package to arrive. There are a couple of drawbacks: The site is all in German (but features a translate-to-English function), and the exchange rate is abysmal–but if you ask us, there’s no more entertaining way to spend $45.
Head on over to Net Granny to pick a Grandma and check this fun site out! (Click on English in the top right corner to get the site to translate.) – Link.
