Attack of Monster Micro Needles from Outer Space!!!!

Teeny tiny .
Itty bitty.

Knitting on these suckers is Shitty.

Original poem by Susan of No Knit Sherlock



All my current projects are knit on "Mini Needles". -Makes them sound kinda cute...Like I'm knitting things for a doll or one of those ridiculously small dogs that gets carried around in someones purse.


From left to right.
Thermal from Knitty designed by Laura Chau - Knit on size 3, Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl by Susan Pierce Lawrence - Knit on size 4's and(Grrrrrrr) Toe up socks, a simple ribbed cuff pattern.... again (Grrrrrr) Size 1's! Okay, okay...so I exaggerate a bit. It's really not too bad. Look how cute my little
Pumpkin stitch marker from Sue looks with my little waffle stitch on my Thermal.

Here is another shot of the 3 projects I will be working indefinitely. I am in Love w/Thermal so I am alternating working on it with a couple of pattern rows for the FCSS (knit on some loverly yarn from WyeSue)to break up the monotony. That damn sock in the top of the picture has a little (see a theme developing?) bit of gray....So I'm saving it for my Grey's Anatomy KAL. (2 full episodes should do the trick) A little patience is what I need.

Here's a little beauty from my backyard. My Lime tree is in full bloom. Isn't she lovely?

She smells even better than she looks ;)

The great thing about knitting all your projects with tiny needles is that you appreciate the big ones when you go back to them!

Thanks for the interfacing tip. I have tried plastic canvas in the past and was unhappy with the result.

Lovely tree! I love living in a warm climate and still having blooming flowers and trees!

I love your thermal so far. I bought 1 ball of the gloss it calls for in the pattern (are you using that?) and made a little swatch & can honestly say, apart from the shine, it's my favorite knit picks. Thermal is on my monster list of projects I want to make. I need to stop looking at other peoples blogs & patterns & such because I have enough knitting for a lifetime.
And the FCSS - looking good. I definitely will make that again. I tried to do a pattern repeat every night which worked well for me as I'm not good at focusing for a long time (especially after a long day at work)
Happy Knitting! Kate :)

After you finish all of your knits on little needles and you make something on a size 11 or something, it will blow your mind just how small small really is. Ever do that? Weeeeird.
