Group of Seven (Mason-Dixon Minis)

Hi all:

well, I got lazy and decided to finish with seven, not nine. Here they are, mounted on wee little 4"x4" canvases:

They were all knitted using Stork Svale fingering cotton - on 2.5 mm (US 1 1/2, I think) double pointed needles.

A fun little exercise - my favourite is the Nina shawl, and I will be taking the yarn for a full-sized one abroad with me on my Christmas trip to London, UK and Paris. :-) Also planning to make a full sized Circle of Fun rug sometime early in the new year 2008.

For more information than you likely need and some more photos, feel free to pop on over to the blog.

World's Smallest Curve of Pursuit?

Hi all: I've recently started a project on miniatures. In the course of this I decided to try to come up with a mini version of Pat Ashforth's Curve of Pursuit (at p. 66 of the MDK book):

The model is Canada's first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald.

Some may or may not recall that I had made a blanket from the full pattern at the beginning of this year. This is a photo of the two together:

The original is 60" x 60", the new one 4" x 4". Cute, eh?

For more info, hop on over to the blog.

log cabin plus!!!

"What on earth is this?", you ask?

I decided to abandon my TTC log cabin as a blanket (got bored with it) and do some stuff with the smaller panels instead. This is one effort:

This is my favourite bit:

Heartbreakingly Cute Baby in a Kimono

Pattern: Heartbreakingly Cute Baby Kimono

Yarn: Araucania Nature Cotton in Orange maybe Color RO02 or RO03

Needles: Size 8 Circulars

Mods: None. I wish I used a different yarn to seam up the sides because the Nature Cotton is so bulky and unforgiving but other wise I am really happy with the results!
