My Creative Space: mini knitty bits


I’ve become somewhat enthusiastic when it comes to knitting [as well as crochet] but not in any big I’m-going-to-knit-myself-a-cardi kind of way. Right now I need instant gratification when it comes to crafting so I’ve been knitting mini pieces to turn into more brooches. It’s lots of fun to just make it up as you go along and see what works – the heart shape took a slight bit of thinkering – and you can just pull it undone if it doesn’t and it’s only taken you a few minutes. Also a very handy kind of craft for doing with a sooky toddler on your lap – he gets cuddles with mama and I get to do creating! Winners all round!

I hear ya! Mini knitting is good. I won't attempt clothing either - to slow! Your little pieces are great! Well done!

i admire people who wing it and make it up as they go along... i just can't do that and i love what people come up with.

Hi Christine. Just stopped by to see what you were up to! That little knitting machine, can you use it to create non-tubular pieces (ie, squares?). I love knitted products but find knitting itself sooooo slow and tedious, I am after a shortcut!! Michelle xx
