XTreme Knitting

I pledge right this very moment to never whine again about the difficulty of a pattern or the way a yarn works up. I have just experienced the most humbling slideshow I have ever seen on Flickr.
Mini Knits by KnitPurr
Please please please go to the Flickr site and watch her slide show. We are talking knitting using STRAIGHT PINS. I kid you not. The paint brush with the paint drop, OMG, and the clown doll for the Doll? Unbelievable. This lady must be in the Guiness Book of World Records or Ripley's Believe or Not. She is amazing. Check out the little dress above - it has a LACE skirt with BEADS. There is RIBBING on the panties - and they are slightly bigger than her fingernail!!! Come on, this is too much. Thanks to Carrie Anne Dennison at BritKnit Cast for her link to Miniature Knitting which linked to this KnitPurr Flickr album.

Thanks for the link. I love all the little mini patterns and hope to knit a few tiny items soon.

I don't, however, think I'll ever be knitting with straight pins!
