Finished Friday: Cute Teeny-Tiny Knits

Since finishing my giant squid, I’ve been looking for interesting but easy needlework projects. I made some more crocheted owls but got bored. (Note to self: if you’ve memorized the pattern, you might want to move on to something else.) I got out my copy of Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec and made a bunch of things I haven’t tried before. Here are a few of them.

First up was chickens. They were cute and fun (and TINY!), so I made several.

Then I tried some other “natural” knits: a pear and a cactus. The pattern has eyes on all these little things, even the inanimate stuff, but I don’t always like how they look, so I left them off of these two. My pear is anemic-looking because my collection of cotton yarns didn’t have the right shade of green in it.



Last of all, I finally made one of the projects from the holiday chapter: the Christmas tree. It’s too tiny to be a traditional ornament, so I think I’ll put a pin on the back so I can wear it next December.

Kit Dunsmore has believed in the magic underlying the muggle world since she was a child searching for the Shetland pony pooka she was sure was hiding in her back yard. She learned early on that books were magic doors into other worlds, and that she could revisit a beloved character or place by opening the right book. As she grew, she decided she wanted to make magic with words, too. Today Kit writes about things she loves: poodles and dragons, witches and artists, quirky underdogs and loyal friends. Whether her setting is 6th-century England, the imaginary Twelve Kingdoms, or an art-obsessed version of modern America, magic always finds its way into her story. She enjoys turning fairy tales inside out and watching characters sacrifice everything to reach their goal, but she also believes in happy endings. When she isn't writing, Kit experiences magic by making things with her hands. Over the years, she's made quilts, fabric sculptures, collages, sweaters, and blank books. Her newest interest is learning how to spin her own yarn, a skill guaranteed to strengthen one of her many delusions: that she is a self-sufficient pioneer woman. She also thinks she is a hobbit, a witch, an artist, and a good cook. Living in the foothills of Colorado, Kit enjoys the giant skies and prairie landscapes which suit her need for wide open spaces. In addition to hiking through glorious scenery with her husband or imagining herself living in the Middle Ages, Kit works as a pillow for her miniature poodle and polishes the next small piece of her handmade life.

    1. I’ve really enjoyed them. There’s another book with cute little animals called Mini Knitted Woodland. I’ll post about it after the book arrives and I give it a try.
