Scenes from a Knit Shop
For those of you who missed it, here's a peek at the Doggie Knits trunk show that was at Arcadia Knitting in March. It's a spoof of the dogs playing poker painting. The idea was Kathy and Sharon's, but I styled the display after the initial set up. I have a whole kennel of dog mannequins, and the bowls are part of my vintage McCoy pottery collection. I'm happy to set up a show at your LYS, if it's in a reasonable distance from the Lucky Penny headquarters.
I love a trunk show, don't you? It really helps to see the garments, and for this project, I'm proud to have my workmanship under scrutiny. Except for two garments, all samples for the book were my knitting. It was a lot of knitting!
