A few days ago I had posed a question about small gauge knitting needles. I got a lot of good information, thanks everyone! Just yesterday I ordered some 000 and some 000-000 (5/0] DPNs from Hiya Hiya because I would like to experiment a bit with miniature knitting.
I got inspired after seeing the video above of Althea Crome knitting the TINY sweaters that were used in the stop-motion movie "Coraline." While she is primarily a knitter of miniature sweaters and gloves, I would like to try making some miniature amigurumi (knitted toys), especially using one of the amazing patterns by Hansi Singh. With the size needles I have coming they won't be nearly as small as anything Althea is doing. But I look forward to the challenge of it and will be sure to post the results if things go well.
