Another miniature knitter told me about this woman's work, you've got to check it out! http://bugknits.com/ It's truly jaw-dropping. Most of her stuff is knit 40-50 sts./inch. And she also has done some stuff at 80 sts./inch (http://www.bugknits.com/gallery/garments3.htm)!!

I can't even wrap my mind around how much time and patience that must take. :shock: Oh yeah...and really, REALLY good eyes!

Thats incredible. I saw a book last week in London's Oxford Street store of Waterstones for "minature knitting" to make Greetings Cards. I've seen the little mini's on ebay. Of course I didn't buy the book and when I returned today to get it - it was gone =(

Surely one would have to use a jeweler's loupe or something similar...

Just think about if you dropped a stitch knitting like that! :shock: :roflhard:

I'm not even sure I'd notice in work that small--not until it was too late, anyway!

:shock: Oh My Gosh!!! I'm getting a headache just thinking about it! Those little shoes, though, so cute!!! I'd take them on w/ a larger gauge. :lol:

I didn't even think about dropping a stitch with those tiny things! That would be a huge nightmare. Would probably just have to start over! I did a tiny sock on 0000...can't imagine doing anything smaller than that! Might be fun to try though.

Geez Louise! I don't think I would have the patience for that and talk about eye strain! :shock:
