Get a Granny knitting your socks
We love this idea. Check out this website www.netgranny.ch - it is a Swiss venture where about a dozen grannies offer their services as sock knitters. You can choose your Granny from the photos on the site and then it takes them a couple of weeks to knit the socks up.
This is great way for these women to capitalise on their skills to supplement their pensions and keep busy, while enabling even those who aren't lucky enough to have their own knitting granny to get a lovely pair of hand knit socks. My own Granny was an Olympic standard knitter and her piece de resistance was tea cosies. She would have loved this.
