knitting - samples to do list update

A sample list ahead of all things knitting

Louisa Harding Thistle - Featherbed from Little Cake by Louisa Harding.  Karen is knitting this.  We're going to get a display head to put it on! Knitted with stripes.  Still have to get a head to put it on!

Louisa Harding Willow Tweed - we like Hawthorn in Little Cake but we only have two hanks of it.  So we may do something like this with a woven stitch pattern.  Only going to use one hank of this now, so we have one for display.

Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino - baby cardigan (it'll be small but it'll soft and cute).

Debbie Bliss EcoBaby - sample of lace shawl from EcoBaby pattern book.  Karen is doing this.

Louisa Harding Grace Wool & Silk - Bainbridge Scarf on  Again, we'll try and keep this for display and use on the day, maybe use up one ball on a sample....

Original plan was to knit little jumpers and cardigans to show 4ply, DK and Aran weight yarn. So far I have done a 4ply cardigan and a DK cardigan using these patterns:-

Rabbit Raglan Sweater and Poppy Cardigan (scroll down for Poppy)

Instead of an Aran jumper I have decided to do a mini cable sample (I have never cabled before...).  I really like owl cable and hope to do a little sample inspired by this hat at Penguin Purls...

I have also started on the bunting using Karen Wessel's bunting pattern (ravelry link)...  bunting wasn't on the orginal to do list but I couldn't resist...
