Puuuuurtyyyyyy.

At first glance: "Either that's a doll sweater, or that's one big-ass ball of yarn."

I'm just imagining a yarn ball larger than my torso...you could slipcover a couch with that, if your fingers didn't fall off first.

Wow, nice work! that's some really fine, tight, neat crochet work :clap:
It took me a minute to rationalise the sizes of the other objects and realise it was a miniature...

This is gorgeous! I can't wait to see it on the figure. (It's funny- I've looked through Frasierdalek's gallery a couple of times, and each time thought "these great little figures could do with some tiny crocheted clothes!)

I didn't think I'd enjoy working with sock yarn as much as I did, I thought it would be too small and therefore cumbersome and frustrating... but I had a blast working with it! :worker:

I had the same thoughts when I used it....it turned out to be quite fun!! Although the socks I attempted to make were horridly failtastic, it's rather a nice weight to work with.

I haven't even attempted knit socks in sock weight yarn. I'm afraid of tiny double-pointed needles, it would seem :XD: Could be worth a shot, though, even if I'm not so great at socks :giggle:

I tried to crochet them. I think I just stink at socks.

I've tried crocheting socks before, too. They were horribly lumpy and too tight. Why can't crochet socks ever look as nice as knitted ones? :ohnoes:

It's a cruel conspiracy. Sigh. I always see crocheted ones that look nice, but when I make them they are silly.

It's even that way with the ones I've knitted :ohnoes: The picture in the pattern looks so brilliant and then... there's mine :iconimsupersurprisedplz:

I think it's the same reason why flowers are crotched rather than knitted:giggle:
