This is miniature knitting I just HAD to share.
I knew about small scale knitting and such, all that tooth pick work and everything. But this lady really takes it to a whole nother dimension...
What do you think?

That is mental!
I thought I was a nutter, maybe I should adjust my thinking :roflhard:

she looks SO happy and accomplished, though. And those pieces would be a hell lot of work in ANY size! But this is truely insane!

Needles the diameter of a human hair...more power to her. No thanks, I'll keep my regular needles and yarn.

yup, those needles sound tiny. But I guess it puts sewing needles to a good use

Neat! I actually have a set of size 000000 knitting needles that I bought at a miniatures shop down the road from where I live. The little shop was here for years, and I always loved going there to look at all the tiny masterpieces of houses, furniture, dolls, clothing, and every other little thing you can find in a normal sized house.
Now the shop is closed.....probably because most people buy their stuff on eBay now. I miss going there to see it all.
I bought a "Mini Knits (http://www.amazon.com/Mini-Knits-Scale-Dolls-House/dp/1861083947)" book at AC Moore once, and placed my tiny knitting needles inside the book. That's as far as I've gone into miniature knitting. :teehee:
I did knit a Barbie dress once. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I still need to sew on the tiny buttons, though.
But that lady's miniature sweaters are UNBELIEVABLE! I could NEVER knit anything like that. :thud:

Absolutely speechless!! My first thought was HOW can she SEE what she's doing??? I could never do this, but I guess she enjoys it!!

oh my goodness!! can't imagine knitting a regular sized sweater with such detail!! linknit41

wow ... to each their own I guess. Not my thing but if it makes her happy ...

I'm going to have to watch Coraline again and check out the sweaters. I didn't really think about someone having to knit small clothes like that for a movie. Very cool and very beautiful. I wonder how long it would take her to knit a regular sweater.

You never really think about all the "behind the scenes" work like that when it comes to movies ... very cool!

This might sound nutso, but I actually found myself really relaxing while I was watching this video! It could have been the music or the absolutely serene aura the knitter presented......
Or I could have been in shock!!!!! :chair:
Either way, thanks for sharing this!
I tried pins and thread once. I dropped too many stitches.
