In my quest to make the most epic booth possible for Stitches South, I am looking for some shop samples so that I have an example of each base knit up. Since I’m bad at finishing things and knit so slowly, I thought I’d put the call out to my many knitter friends and see if any of you can help me.
Here’s what I need (crossed out items mean I already have them):
Black Cherry Lace: Belle Grande Shawl (Sarah S)
Pin Cherry Lace:
Rock Island Shawl
Mountain Laurel Lace: Bee Leaf Pi Shawl (Keli)
Sugar Maple Sock:
Don’t Cage Me In Sock, Mystery Shawl #2
Silver Maple Sock: Level Up Socks (Tara)
Mountain Maple Sock: La Vie de Bois Socks (Erin)
Red Maple Sock: Under the Wire Cowl (Charis)
Striped Maple Socks: Happily Ever After Mitts, modified (I’ll be knitting this one)
Hoaloha Sweater, In August Away Cowl (I’ll be knitting this one)
Black Ash Worsted:
Stargazing Cowl, ??
White Ash Worsted:
Ingrid the Monster, Lined Beanie (Sara B)
Basswood Bulky: TBA (not sure if I’ll be carrying this to Stitches)
If you would like to knit one of these items for me, thank you. I will send you the yarn and the pattern; when you’re done, you mail the finished object back to me. The rest of the yarn is yours, and you will receive a discount code for my shop as a thank you. Please email me at heatherAThighlandhandmadesDOTcom. As I get volunteers, I’ll update the list here. This will mean SO MUCH for the finished look of my booth as it is very true that samples sell yarn.
UPDATE: WOW! That was so fast! I went to the kitchen to dye club yarn and as soon as I got back here, all samples were spoken for. You ladies really are the BEST. If I need anything else I’ll let you know! WOW!
