A trunk show is a special event within the fashion world in which an artist or designer puts on a special display of his or her work for review by a select group. They are referred to as "trunk shows" because a designer or sales rep will literally showup with a trunkof merchandise to showoff. Trunk shows are common in boutiques and boutique divisions of department stores.Destination Yarn has two trunk shows coming up – one at Soft ‘n Sassy on Feb. 7 from 12-5, and one at Stash Style on Feb. 27.
I’m super excited.
Crazy excited, actually. My mind is reeling with the possibilities. Door Prizes! Free patterns with purchase! New colorways!
I’m just a little behind on that whole “trunk of merchandise” thing.
So not only have I been dying like a madwoman but I’ve also been knitting samples as fast as I possibly can.
Basic Sock knit out of the London.
It’s not just socks, though… I want to show that my yarn is awesome no matter what it becomes. And really what’s more luxurious and fashionable than a beautiful scarf? Except for Paris, of course. And a scarf knit out of Paris? Divine.
Although pre-blocking not so much.
But there’s potential there...
Throw it in some water and wool wash…
The pattern is the Strangling Vines Lace Scarf.
It is knit out of Paris Night.
The sock yarn works wonderfully in a scarf. It blocks out well and is fine enough for lacework without being so fine that its difficult to work with.
You can tell these pictures were taken awhile ago – there’s actual color in the background as opposed to the awful gray world of January. But a project isn’t completely finished until I post some pictures and update my Ravelry page.
So now we can call this one done.
And with that I’m back to the knitting…. And dying…. And running around like a crazy lady.
These shows are going to be good!
