Last year when Berroco published their free pattern for Minutia I got exited, but time never made itself available. Then this year I got the newsletter with Minutia 2008 and I was off and rolling....
I downloaded the patterns and after studying the notions I was horrified by the recommended needle size, 4.25mm. How can that be small and dainty? So I switched to size 2mm, used a lace weight homespun/silk, but kept the pattern directions. figured it would be small but in proportion. Worked great and I started to experiment with cables...That inspired me for the hats. It is wonderful how you can test a pattern in minutia, does not take long (1 1/2 hour), here is the Aran sweater in cashmere/silk.
I had the bug, and while surfing through the net for other patterns I found one for a "Baby Surprise" jacket for a 4cm doll!!! E.Z. would be delighted. Too cool or what?
So this afternoon as the light rye dough was rising and the weather stormed outside, I cast on.
So here is my latest collection, the purple cable at the bottom right was my first try, I am getting better.
Okay, I am in no way near Bugknits level, check it out it`s worth it.
