The gravit was started at the Craft Fair in 2004, it was the idea of Jane Moncrieff who organised the fair that year. The idea was to promote the fact that knitting is fun and was hoped that lots of people would go on to knit a row or two. I have used the gravit since 2005 in the Craft Fair promotional material, and it has been knitted in some unusual places.
