Miniature knitting

I have a friend with a dolls' house. Not a child's doll house, but a beautiful creation with handmade accessories. Wendy has made some of the furniture herself, including the sofa she upholstered with pieces of a kid glove. She has stitched carpets, clothing, curtains, and quilts in miniature. Beautiful, and a testament to her craft skills.

I saw this video and thought some of you may be as fascinated as I am by this world of creating things on a very small scale. Garments like these are in Wendy's doll house, on dolls and in the wardrobes.


This website is fascinating. http://www.bugknits.com/
Althea Crome knits in miniature and has patterns for sale.
Here are some photos of her work (from her website).




One of these days, When I have time (!!!) I will investigate this more. I might even finish the tiny bag I started about ten years ago as a kit. Can I do it? Maybe. Wendy wears a magnifier on a headband so she can see her own work. Many things are possible.
