Hi I’m new I don’t even have an icon yet but g/t knitting


Tinies making blankets, but it’s barely the size of a dish rag for a human.

Giants making dish rags and they’re the size of blankets for humans.

The difference between the hole sizes and the needle sizes oh my gosh. Being able to like crawl through the holes in a giant’s blanket and thinking the tiny’s blanket is factory made because DANG where are all the HOLES?

I just like knitting okay and this was a beautiful concept to me


I wanted to make sure I had some smaller-size mittens for my next craft show (which, in case you missed my earlier post, is this Sunday 10/22, from 12-5, at the Harrisburg Sheraton on Lindle Road, Harrisburg PA), so I’ve been working like crazy to get some done. I’ve made three mittens in two days, which puts me at halfway on my goal of three pairs of mittens. Also, I turned this little Precious Moments charm into a stitch marker, and it makes me super happy 😊
