Why didn't I think of that?

Let Grandma Do It.

There is now a company in France, Golden Hook, that lets you choose a hat you want to have made for you, then you get to pick the Grandma that is going to knit it for you!

The concept is simple:
  1. Choose your shape of hat (simple, long, with a pompom or Peruvian). The have pre-designed models or a blank one that you can customize.

  2. Then you get to choose the granny who is going to knit your hat and ask her to write your name on the label.

  3. Order the hat and have it delivered to your home or have it mailed to a friend with his/her name written on the label.
