Knitting Blog: The Art of the Small

Lenore Happenstance tweeted me a link to a short video about some of the incredible teensy tinesey knitting that is part of the new movie Coraline. For your viewing pleasure:

The artist, Althea Crome, has been featured in a few articles in knitting magazines over the years. For more of the fantastic, check out her website, Bugknits.

Crome's knitting is a pure miniature, an exact replica of a human-scaled object but created on a very small scale. If a particular sweater needs 200 stitches around to fit a human body, Crome's version will also have 200 stitches. 200 very tiny stitches.

Wouldn't you love to have one of her sweaters, mounted in a little lucite box? I certainly would.
