tiny needles

zsa mask

I'm knitting a top for Ivy with very tiny needles. It's really fun but so slow going. I feel like I spend an hour on just a couple rows. But I'll get there. And I think I like the look of small stitches much better vs. knitting with large needles and yarn. I guess I'll have to grow some patience. A friend shared this video with me and I might be a little obsessed. How amazing.

I made this Zsa "bat" mask for Ivy's boyfriend Asher, Gray kindly models the look. Ivy has requested one in pink.

  1. That you knit all the things that you do is testament to your already having grown plenty o' patience. And that is the cutest little laughing grin ever! Gosh I love little boy faces, don't you?

  4. I think my head just exploded after watching that video. That teeny-tiny ocean scene sweater with the teeny-tiny orcas and teeny-tiny rainbow. It never occurred to me to think about Coraline's wardrobe.

    (Kaboom!)

  5. I love that mask. One of my goals when I learn to slow down and not be so busy, is to learn how to knit. I will get there someday.... and I will make a mask like this!

  13. I lack patience, which means tiny needles would be an act of penance for me ;)

    As for the hat, oh my goodness!! I'm in love as is Mr. G here who saw it & wants one with all his heart.

  14. That is too precious! If I were to knit (and I don't) and I had one girl with my 3 boys (and I don't) I sure would think a pic with 3 black batman mask and 1 pink one sure would be cute!
