Teeny tiny knitting

I've seen these before, but came across them again this morning and thought this would be inspiring for someone who would like to give an unusual gift.

As you can see there are many sources.  This was awe inspiring the first time I found them.

Have fun!

Speaking of miniature knits, check this artist out! Pure eye-candy!  I wrote an article about Althea a few years ago for our Australian Textile Fibre Form magazine because her work blew me away when I first tripped over it.  The detail in her 'picture' knits is incredible when you bear in mind that her tiny garments measure just inches.

Knitting with sewing thread and "almost invisible" needles isn't my thing but I can sure appreciate the results of someone else's endeavours.  In fact it almost leaves me speechless..... Smiley

Thank you for posting this.  I have seen that site before but forgot about it.  What an amazing talent.

Charlene and Jenny,

Thank you for the links to this amazing work!  Smiley  I love miniatures...LOL, they make my hands cramp, but I still love 'em!

I have Christmas ornaments in mind for next year.  LOTS of time so I don't have to rush.  That said, watch me have to sprint to the finish line the last week before Christmas next year.  I could make this year's New Year's Resolution to be more organized, but since this is the end of January already, you can see how that would work out.

My local librarian knits miniature sweaters but the ones posted by althena are just unbelievable. I'd have to knit under a microscope to do that!

LOL, now you're sounding like me!  Tell me if this is what goes through your mind, too:  There's plenty of time.  I don't have to do that now.  Time is getting a little shorter.  Still plenty of time, though.  I don't have to do that now.  Oh, no...time is getting too short.  I'd better move!

Same here.  It's too impossibly small!

ROFL!  Ssh, don't tell anyone, but sometimes I end up admitting defeat, having procrastinated too long.  In theory, it all works.  In reality...not so well!
