I wanted to welcome you to KH :waving:

I'm afraid I know nothing about such small knitting, but someone around here surely will :wink:

:waving: Hello Karen I too live in England, Norfolk actually. Nice to see another Brit :happydance:

I am afraid I can not help you with the tiny knitting :shrug:
Have you Googled it yet?

I used to do counted cross stitch, I was addicted to them for a while. I did the Row of Love one with the teddies sitting on the bed cushion. That was the biggest I did.
I see you do scrapbooking, I have never done that. My neice has just said she wants to do it, she is 10 years old. I have been looking for a kit. Do you think it would be better to buy bits separate and put a collection together?

Anyway I digress I am pleased to meet you :hug:

:waving: Welcome Karen!!! WOW!! All those crafts! :eyes: All I can do is knit. I don't know anything about knitting that small but you could try www.knittingpatterncentral.com They have a section for dolls. I think Lion Brand has something for dolls too but I'm not sure :??
