In the midst of knitting mittens for my children, I paused to knit up a little bit of silly.
Using Anna Hrachovec's Teeny Tiny Mochimochi book as a guide, I spent a couple of hours with teeny tiny needles, fine sock yarn, and lots of giggling to craft these teeny tiny magical folk.
Then I posed them on a miniature pumpkin and created an ocean scene with some hand knit socks and giggled some more.
One of my sisters wanted to know why I'd knit something so small and silly. Then she saw the mermaid and has now requested a few for her Solstice tree.
There are few people who can resist the allure of teeny tiny things!
(Ahem, and that explains why, this afternoon, we'll be welcoming a miniature horse into our barnyard).
