Group of Seven (Mason-Dixon Minis)
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.

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

log cabin plus!!!
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
Yarn: Araucania Nature Cotton in Orange maybe Color RO02 or RO03
Needles: Size 8 CircularsMods: 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!
