for my daughter's kitten, Gus. The pattern is Tiny Dinosaur (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tiny-dinosaur), from the book Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi.

Perfect! The kitten will love it, I'm sure. What a fun book. (i once made an apatasaurus sweater with the tail wrapping around to the back.)

Yes, he liked his new toys (my other daughter made him a tiny goldfish from the same book). Such a sweet kitty; I see more knitted toys in his future.

So cute. Did you put some catnip inside with the stuffing? that does make them crazy though....

I looked up the book, and NEED to buy it now.

story: a gf phoned me yesterday, said she stopped at a farm to buy some eggs (saw a roadside sign). As soon as she stepped out of her car, a flock of chickens came flapping up to her, all wobbly and cute. She was delighted, laughed.

I saw in the teeny-tiny book that there's a pattern for mini chickens, and I'd like to make her a 'flock' of them as a gift.

Thanks for sharing!

Gus is so frisky, he doesn't really need catnip, but his "mom" has some if she wants to add it (an easy way is to put the toy and a little catnip in a ziplock bag and shake it up).

The book just has so many fun projects. Your friend is going to love the chickens.

You can use larger needle sizes; just use a bit thicker yarn. I used a size 2 for that dinosaur. You could even make the projects with worsted weight yarn and maybe size 4 needles. They'd come out a bit bigger but still pretty small and cute. Gauge is not critical for these.

those needles are still so tiny, the smallest size i have is a 4 and I haven't touched it, i did a 5 but it was still very hard for me to work with

just thought of another question: do the needles have to be teeny-tiny also? or can I use regular lengths of small guage needles? The ones pictured in the book look about as long as toothpicks.

You can definitely use regular lengths. I used a circular needle with 5" tips. Or you can use DPNs if you prefer.
