Sadly, this year’s PoodleFest is now really and truly over. The yarn scraps have been swept away and all the empty wine bottles have been put out for recycling.
But don’t despair, because elsewhere in this great universe, the fuzzy acrylic poodle torch is still alight! Okay, that’s a terrible metaphor (bringing to mind alarming visions of flaming poodles), but the point is that I’m not the only one who believes that Poodle Cozies are High Art.
Main Street Museum – one of the niftiest little museums you’ll *ever* run across – has an extensive Poodle Cozy collection.
And for those of us who can’t make it to Vermont to see the poodles in person (which is a crying shame considering some of their live events), the Main Street Museum has put their collection online. The Crocheted Poodle Set comes complete with hilarious captions by Melissa Mendes, who has given each and every Poodle a unique personality.
Melissa writes, “Tina's been around, if you know what I mean. But underneath that skimpy crocheted unitard is a heart of gold.”
A toast to Poodle Cosies!
