Here's one I prepared earlier


The Shopping Sherpa is curating a miniatures exhibition at Craft ACT next month. For quite a few of the participants - including me - working in 1/12 scale is a new experience. It's been quite a challenge but I have enjoyed getting my head around it. Not just technically how to go small enough, but also the logistics of handling and and storing tiny, light, 9mm high pears. (I handed one to my sister the other day and it bounced away to the floor - luckily we found it easily).

TSS came over this morning for a 'studio visit' and took photos of the process of making these little pears. They are not knitted, but wet-felted like this one.

Oh my goodness, the patience those must take to make! I want to say they're cute but I don't want to sound like I'm minimizing them. (Ach, no pun intended.) Small things are so often called cute... something about anything in miniature. They must be even more amazing in person.

That is amazing. I was imagining in my mind how you would knit that first then I figured you'd just felt a ball of fluff. I'd like to see process photos of that.

Miniatures do like to sneak away. I knitted a tiny tiny swatch and almost lost it while I was trying to get it dry.
