Inside the Knitter’s Studio:

  • From MissBossiePants
    • I have been waiting for some time for a certain color way to appear or at the very least be included in the discussion of whether there will or will not be a fore mentioned colorway in the offing. I speak of none other than the “Watermelom/Fireworks Bus Emporium. I was so tickled by that entire story that I can’t help but chuckle every time I think of it. Which is quite often! Following the smashed watermelons on the streets as the bus takes the corners and the occasional casualty is left so you eventually catch up in time to make your purchases. Fireworks in the front, melons in the back. Really? How can this story not be commemorated in a colorway?
