These gnomes might get lost in your garden...
If you haven't discovered Mochimochi Land yet then take a peek... The characters that live there are original designs by Anna Hrachovec, a knitter who lives in Chicago. Anna finds inspiration in characters like Hello Kitty, TV shows like Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, and illustrators like Dr Seuss.


Knitting on Pins and Needles, a project from the book Knit the Sky by Lea Redmond. You might need your glasses to whip up this tiny project!


If you saw the movie Coraline then chances are you'll have noticed that the miniature clothes are knitted... including this starry sweater. See more from the designer, Althea Crome, at


These eskimos come straight from the imagination of Sachiyo Ishii, a designer whose work rarely hits the 5cm mark!


A teeny weeny corn on the cob from Little Bitty Knitter – she's also heavily into crochet, and makes amazing characters. You'll love her Wizard of Oz Dolls!
