Miniature knitting, cool link!
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!!

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 =(
