Who would have thought that crocheting would make it this big and selling on their site making big money...here is an excerpt from their site:

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.
The crocheted g-strings can be ordered from http://koniakow.com for around 17 each.

We have a snowstorm and I thought this would be fun to send on.:teehee:

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."
