Teeny, Tiny Progress
Anway, I hope you can see the images well enough to see what I've been up to lately. Considering the hours I have poured into this project it really does seem like a tiny object. Let me tell ya though, this is stitch for stitch as much work as a full sized human sweater. It's the February Lady Sweater being done 1/4 scale with laceweight, handspun yarn and very fine knitting needles so that it will finish up in a size that will fit a 16" doll.
It's not finished yet, but Delilah tried it on to confirm that yes, all is well and it is going to fit. Now to make it longer and add sleeves.
And here's how I accomplish this miniature work. Lots of light and lots of magnification! I have to take out my contact lenses (they're not working that well for me lately anyway), put on my glasses, turn on a bright lamp over my shoulder and knit with my hands under a magnifying light. THEN I can see what I'm doing! Dropped stitches can have tragic consequences though.
