Operation Global (Mobile) Bombination

In case you haven’t heard, Saturday June 9th is International Yarn Bombing Day.  This is as close to a high holy day as you can get as a Bombshell, so we plan to celebrate in style.  We will be touring downtown and visiting some of our favorite fine drinking establishments.  We’ve even lined up the perfect chariot for our holiday cruise: the Pedal Wagon.  For this, we must thank our wonderful benefactors -  Cute Jack of Pedal Wagon fame and, Tasty Chris, of hot spot Arnold’s.  Hello boys!  As Blanche Dubois said in A Streetcar Named Desire, “I have always depended on the kindness of strangers”.  So true.  This wouldn’t be possible without their generosity.  Behind every Bombshell is a good man willing to defend her honor, protect her identity, and feed her peeled grapes.  Or, at least lend her a Pedal Wagon.  Who says chivalry is dead?

As this will be a most auspicious day, we’ll be specially dressed for the occasion.  A Bombshell is sultry on a normal day.  Add in the summer heat and we’re sure to make the temperature rise.  Yarn bombing an outfit in these conditions can be a challenge though.  Wool yarn isn’t my first choice when selecting attire for a tropically hot day, so here’s hoping no Bombshell passes out from heatstroke.  Ahem, I mean catches the vapors and swoons from the heat.  (Note to self: pack smelling salts and a fainting couch.)

So whether you’re at Fringe Festival downtown or simply want an excuse for a cocktail, meet us along our route and help us celebrate.  We’ll kick off the festivities on Fountain Square at 2 pm where we’ll yarn bomb the trees, then on to Neon’s at 3 pm where we’ll decorate our ride, we’ll pedal to the bars of OTR starting at 5 pm, and we’ll conclude our cruise at 7 pm at Arnold’s.  If you’re lucky, you may even get a homemade party favor. 

Hope to see you there. 

Hugs and Stitches,
Kitty Knitter

P.S. In case you can’t make it Saturday or you can’t get enough of us (And, let’s be honest, who can?) we can be seen the next day 6/10 at Second Sunday on Main in Dr. Bongonatti’s Art Parade.  The parade kicks off at 1:30 pm.
