Now That's Some Nice Wool - It's Friday WTF?

Polish grannies are putting their crocheting skills to a new use - making G strings!

No longer able to sell their hand-crafted doilies and table clothes, women in the tiny Polish mountain village of Koniakow turned their crocheting skills to making sexy lingerie.

And the business has proved such a success that the crochetiers have now launched an online shop for people around the world to buy the knitted underwear.

Tadeusz Rucki, who funds the granny g-string firm, said: "People aren't only mad about g-strings in traditional white crochet, but also in red and black."

But the head of the local Society for Folk Art, Helena Kamieniarz, is not happy with the new business, saying: "What is being done to our old traditions is a disgrace. The art of crochet is not intended for making such garments."

1 :shock: I found this pic on a search under "crochet". The lace looks nice, the girl is devoid of _____ ____ & they don't pay crochet artists enough to make a living at selling table cloths or doilies, but these gals are making money at selling lace using ___ to promote their art. What else do we expect them to do? After all, at least they're not on Welfare!
