Come & see the AlterKnits trunk show!

Just in: a trunk show featuring garments and accessories from Leigh Radford's AlterKnits book. If you haven't at least browsed through AlterKnits, you really should. It's not a typical pattern book, but rather a jumping-off point for your own creativity: sure, there are some cool patterns that you can follow if you like, but also tips and exercise for how to unleash your own creativity and personal style, even a notebook for your jottings and drawings.

We've got the AlterKnits trunk show through February 6th. The silk skullcap

is even more gorgeous than it looks in the book.

The mixed media pillow, in a lovely shade of dusty rose, has texture that you can't keep your hands off of.

We've got several other items: the sweater with velvet trim, polka-dotted baby caps, felted bag and more. If you've been baffled by the notion of the knitted screen door,

cast aside your skepticism and come see these beautiful garments. Even if you don't want to make one of these, we expect that the examples may unleash your fertile knitting imaginations.
