Maybe I Think Too Much
But I deny being insane. This is insane. Or this.
What I do love is "complex" and "as small as I can make it".
Knitting with some purple variegated tatting thread on a pair of Havel's 7" doll needles, approximately the size of my 0000 knitting needles. The ruler in the picture, which I dearly love, is a 6-inch steel rule with inches divided into 64ths of an inch.
How do you knit with something that small?
A) I'm nearsighted. Taking my glasses off makes the far-away world go blurry, but up close it's like wearing Mag-Eyes all the time.
B) I knit with my fingernails. Specifically, my left middle fingernail controls the stitches as they leave the left needle. When I snapped this nail short a couple of weeks ago, I had a much harder time knitting with the really fine thread until it grew back out.
C) I really really like "small".
