All You Knit is Love

I’m putting this in the Hall of Fame, both for its fairly tortured pun and reference to a Beatles song (both things I love). Not a bad start by first-time punter Michelle Keomany, who spotted this ‘spainful’ PSN in Barcelona. You can check out her blog here.

Always in Stitches

I bet the owner of this craft shop in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida USA, thought his hilarious PSN would never get old. I also bet that after answering the phone with it all day, the employees are about ready to stab themselves in the eye with a knitting needle. Well done to prolific punster Jonathan Schneider for finding it.

A drum-roll please… This magical Pun Shop Name was spotted by Mel Campbell, but if anyone could take a shot of the shop at 154 Victoria Street, Brunswick VIC, I’d be very grateful. They’re ‘magicians with fabric’, as you can plainly see here.

Here’s a first: This Pun Shop Name was sent in by two different people on exactly the same day. From Berry NSW, thank you to both Georgia O’Brien and Jade Ramsey for bringing this Pun Shop Name into class. You both get an A+.

Wool and the Gang

“Celebrate good puns, come on!” When Cool and the Gang released ‘Celebration’ in 1980, could they have imagined that Kylie Minogue would become famous for it 12 years later? Or that they would be the inspiration for this knitting-related Pun Shop Name in New York City? Thanks for the shot KC (and the Sunshine Band?)
