Golden Hook

Have you heard about Golden Hook? It is the greatest concept I’ve heard about in a long time! You choose your hat and with it a grannie who is going to knit it for you. So stinkin’ cute! They have recently started a kids line…

A few years ago a guy called Jeremy realised that, while visiting his great aunt in her retirement home, a lot of the ladies there were bored and would love to earn a little bit of extra money on the side. The idea for Golden Hook was born! You choose a hat, a scarf or a snood and 15 days later you’ll receive a freshly made item, carefully hand-knitted. It’s kind if cool to know that your child’s hat has been made the old fashioned way, no?

Great site! That is such a sweet idea. I am tempted to get a hat for my boy and a scarf for myself. There are so many pretty ones!

I’m so glad you just did this post about Golden Hook, not because they are friends of mine but because I knew them when they were still students and I was amazed by their concept, their confidence and their motivation. They just prove you can do great things with a big idea, and strong team work.

What a fantastic idea! Thank you for the post, I will definitely feature this on my blog. So lovely to think of all those lovely old ladies knitting and having goals / focus rather than just sitting there. Inspirational!
