So, you’ve been pining for a country-western song that goes straight to the heart of the true-blue woman who knits?  You’re in luck. This just in from Crafters News (Crown):

You’ve knitted their colorful blankets, sassy nightgowns, adorable baby bibs, dishtowels, and more, but did you know that Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne of Mason-Dixon Knitting fame are actually country singers in disguise?

Give a listen to Kay and Ann on the hypothetical Nashville Bandwagon Show, performing their side-splitting-funny country song “Pardon Me (I Didn’t Knit that For You)”.

Now, doesn’t that make you want to rush right out and… knit up something cosy for the one you love?

This musical gem was part of the whoop-up launch of the paperback edition of Mason-Dixon Knitting: The Curious Knitter’s Guide: Stories, Patterns, Advice, Opinions, Questions, Answers, Jokes, and Pictures. They have another book out now too, but I haven’t read it yet. Still, a sensible person would have to assume that it’s equally funny in that unique southern-US-female kind of way, and equally obsessed with knitting.
