As we ease slowly but surely into spring, keeping your noggin nuzzled is still essential. Thanks to GoldenHook , every one can now count on a grandma to provide a custom, handmade knit hat to do just that. Through a super user-friendly site (can you think of anything else from a grandma?), you can customize the style, stripes, and size of your knit cap, and pick one of six grandmas to do the duty.
I designed a rainbow Peruvianos for fun and it came up at 85 euro, as Golden Hook is based out of France (it converts to approximately $107 US). Even though I don't have the dough, it's good to know they accept US payments via Paypal or credit card, since I'll be needing a good knit hat to keep me cozy while I go skiing in Aspen in the near (ok, distant) future, for which I don't have the dough for either.

Check their site for these rockin (think roll, not chair) grandmas and their short bios via the 'Grandmas' link before you design your individualized custom cap.
