Micro knitting

Not too long ago, a friend asked if I’ve ever tried knitting something on a small scale.

Of course I had to make a reasonable attempt.
And yes, this project is done because I can’t continue…it’s just too darn small and fiddly to work on.
:laughing:

Gobs of foolish patience and cussing, that’s how :wink:

If you decide to try this, be sure to file the pointy tips of the sewing pins to dull them :smiley:

I did some of this years ago for a project teachers had for CAE. I did some on pins and others on toothpicks. I’ve seen tiny sweaters done with complete patterns!

Wow. This is amazing. I think dollhouse miniatures are fiddle. They don’t even come close to this! Well done.

Did you drink a nondescript bottle with a label that said “drink me” before knitting this? It’s so so unbelievably tiny! I’m extremely impressed :smile:

Ooh, with fuzzy yarn, no less! Impressive! :green_heart:

My grandmother used to do tiny favors for her Christian Women’s Club meetings, and everyone’s favorite set was tiny workbaskets with an empty creamer container for the basket, several balls of thread/yarn, & a tiny few rows of knitting on pins like this.

Oh wow! I can’t imagine how fiddly tiny knitting would be. But you were on a roll. Why’d you quit? I think you should continue on and make a tiny sweater. :rofl:

I enjoy how easy it is for you to volunteer your friend for further torture :wink:

Wow! I am both impressed and inspired. What did you use for your fuzzy yarn? I’ve contemplated trying this (apparently I share your insanity?) but was thinking a single strand of embroidery floss might be the way to go.

I hope your eyes and fingers have recovered from the endeavor!

I’m trying to think of something to say. My mind is blown. This is… insane! All I can think is, “Girl, you are crazy!.” Bahahaha! Talk about challenge excepted. I keep staring at your pic. Wow.
