Miniature skeins

I've decided to do a miniature scene somehow related to knitting. I'm not sure what exactly yet. I've tossed around the idea of a knitting store or maybe a Christmas scene. Anyway, these are some miniature skeins that I've made for the scene. These mini-skeins are made with 2 strands of embroidery floss about a yard long. I wrap the strands around my hand, take it off and twist it with crochet hooks like you would twist a full-sized skein with your hands, then I tuck one end in the other. Cute, huh?

How about a knitting store decorated in a Christmas Theme? How large will the scene be?

I will do the store or scene in 1:12 ratio which means 1 inch = 1 foot and it will probably be about "room" sized - 8X12. I might even do more than one scene. I'm thinking little knitted stockings.
