Itty Bitty needles and knitting

Once again, I want to spotlight Gill from the UK.  Gill buys her Hiya Hiya needles from me for all the doll clothes she knits.  Her knits are amazing. 

In her own words (used with permission)
I knit with 2/28 cashmere lace yarn. I just love to knit and the smaller the better.

 The most important thing to me is to keep it in scale for the doll I am knitting for. I usually do my own designs bit I think the ones I sent through to you are all from Dollswest Designs, a lady called Cynthia from the US. Sometimes it is nice just to sit down with a pattern that someone else has done.

I swear by those needles now that I have found them but confess that I use them like straight pins!

Enjoy the photos! 
Gill uses 24" stainless steel needles in a 000-000, 000-00, 0000, 000, and all the way to the "larger" size of 0.

Thank you my friend, for allowing me to share and your dolls are beautiful as well!                                            

I will be gone from the blogging world until perhaps the end of May.  Going to see Island Girl and Boy and need to finish a couple of projects for Mini Island Boy before he arrives....  I leave next Wednesday.........................
