One of the things that I know I need for shows and fairs is samples. SAMPLES. The great thing about sample knits is that they give people the opportunity to see and feel the way the yarn knits up, not just the way it looks in the skein. You can see the colour distribution, the stitch size, the drape of the fabric at various gauges. The trouble with sample knits is that it takes a very long time to knit them. So I'm knitting bunting. Lots of yarn samples, lots of different colours. Decoration and samples all in one!
I plan to mount them on white cotton twill tape, and write the yarn name, colour and possibly needle size on the back. Yay laundry marker!
I should be able to whip up one or two of these per day between now and Wonderwool - enough for a 'starter pack' on the stall. And the beauty is - I can keep expanding the bunting as needed! (I'm quite pleased with this idea, can you tell?!)
