Tiny Things and Tiny Minds
I was digging round in some old stuff and found some of the itty bitty clothes that my Nanna knitted for my brother's action figures (he gets very upset if you call them dolls). She must have had the patience of a saint to make such tiny raglan sleeved sweaters with 2 ply yarn on 2mm needles. It appears that Action Man was quite a trendy dude back in the 70s, although I can't say I approve of knitted trousers for those over a foot high. Oh well, they kept a little boy very happy.
My little mind has been preoccupied with lots of little things other than knitting this week which can only be put down to the fact that it's August. I get very restless every year around this time and I've never understood why. It'll pass. In the meantime I've been working on some wrist warmers like the ones I got for my birthday last year. My friend Chris really likes them, so I thought I'd do him some for his birthday. The construction may look a little odd, but I'm going for an exact replica to make the fleece lining a bit easier to work out.
