Mini-knitting
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?

I thought I was a nutter, maybe I should adjust my thinking

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" 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.

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.
