Net Granny

This ingenious site lets you choose a real-life Swiss grandmother to custom-knit you a pair of socks. Click through photos and select a crafter (we're especially fond of sweet-looking, silver-haired Annie, who says she knits to stay awake while watching TV), place your order, and then wait a few weeks for an airmail package to arrive. There are a couple of drawbacks: The site is all in German (but features a translate-to-English function), and the exchange rate is abysmal—but if you ask us, there's no more entertaining way to spend $45.
