One of the best parts of my job is the interesting people I meet. Earlier this month I had a delightful conversation with Grand Rapids knitter, Virginia Loukus, who happened to be sporting a hat embellished with a knitted dish scrubbie when she stopped by my booth at the Fulton Street Artisans Market.
As a big fan of unconventional fashion statements, I was amused and intrigued by Virginia’s headwear. I jotted down a few notes and followed up with a phone interview. Turns out Virginia really likes to knit scrubbies to use herself and sell to others. You can read the column I wrote about her and find her scrubbie pattern in the Home section of Sunday’s edition of The Grand Rapids Press. You can read the electronic version here.
