I'm not talking sitting in the family room and knitting like you're-getting-ready-to-die knitting. I'm talking a free market venture. I'm talking small business.
Who in America doesn't like a chick opening a small business? Who doesn't want to see a new knitting shop open up in America? America is totally pro-knit.
Nothing too cutesy, just a cool little boutique with an outside-the-box retro vibe. Of course we'll have your knitting supplies: your yarns, your needles, your patterns.
I'm calling it the Knit 'n Shit.
I like the idea of a pinball machine and an ice-cold-beer-to-go! cooler. I like a couple of candy racks too. And hey, a vendor comes in and wants to put up a fingernail polish display? I'm open to your fringe ideas.
There'll be a lounge area in the back where you can hang around knitting and talking to other knitters. There will always always always be incense burning at the Knit 'n Shit. And I will always always be there, wearing a snazzy scarf around my head or a macramé shawl or gogo boots.
All the knitters will think I am so cool.
I'm hoping to attract the sort of regulars in the lounge who bring in your occasional plate of homemade cookies. Maybe chocolate chip without chocolate chips, but with m&m's instead of chocolate chips: red, green and yellow happy bombs peeking out from the regular cookie part. You starting to get my gist here?
We'll also have a place where regulars can showcase the stuff they made. You're a grandma who wants to put one of those multi-colored sweaters you knit on a hanger for the whole world to see? Come on down to the Knit 'n Shit.
Best get started. Now then, does anyone have a knitting pattern for a peekaboo bra and undie set?
