Crocheted Panties.jpg

Most might not know the different between knitting and crochet, so let me explain a few basic differences. Knitting uses two long needles while crocheting uses a single, shorter hook. Crochet yarn resembles more string or cotton twine than does the usual fuzzy knitting wool. Finally, knitting typically creates linear patterns while crocheting forms circular shapes that can connect together into larger designs.

Traditional uses for crochet include tablecloths, doilies, afghans, toilet paper roll covers, baby clothes, shawls and ponchos. Not exactly, the hippest stuff to try to sell these days since other than the paper ones on catering trays, who uses doilies? Meanwhile those horribly brightly hued often mostly orange afghans seem relegated to a few chilly basement rec rooms that haven't gotten and overhaul since the 1970s.

However, those handy with hands might rightly be considered perhaps equally creative in marketing. Putting a new spin on an old yarn art has woven success back into a rapidly unraveling market.

According to Ananova, a group of women in the tiny Polish mountain village of Koniakow has come up with a whole line of crocheted lingerie including thong underwear and peek-a-boo bra tops that is now marketed online alongside all, the more expected, crocheted items.

Tadeusz Rucki, who funds the granny coalition's website, http://koniakow.com, says, "People aren't only mad about g-strings in traditional white crochet, but also in red and black."

Meanwhile Helena Kamieniarz, the head of the local Society for Folk Art, is not amused by the new marketing ploy, saying, "What is being done to our old traditions is a disgrace. The art of crochet is not intended for making such garments."

I say, with the items that selling for 25 Euros (approximately $31.60 US), to hell with tradition, lady, we should all be turning our old, useless skills into new moneymakers.

In fact, I think I'm going to try marketing macramé sex swings to S&M hippies. It should be like many a plant hanger but with a bigger spot in the middle to support an ass and a couple stirrups on either side of the top.

I actually assume that if the first anonymous didn't know how to use one apostrophe, we can probably bet he or she doesn't know how to use any apostrophes correctly.
