Thank you for sharing your super-small knits in the comments! The winners were just selected by a trio of tiny gnomes.
The smallest thing I ever knitted was this itty-bitty elephant, made with lace weight yarn and size 000 needles, which I made a couple of years ago.
Even though I’m always knitting tiny things, making this extra-tiny guy drove me nuts! But it was a fun challenge and I’m glad I attempted it. (Unfortunately I think I accidentally vacuumed it up at some point, but at least I have the photo.)
If you know me, you know I always have tiny knits on my mind, but I’m especially thinking about them lately because the nice people at Lion Brand recently sent me the smallest, cutest sets of mini skeins I’ve ever seen!
I’m really not much of a squealer, but these perfect little packages elicited some audible delight out of me when I first saw them. They’re Lion Brand’s new Bonbons yarn, which is now available on the Lion Brand website and also at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in NYC. Each assortment contains 8 mini skeins of yarn, and they’re available in sport-weight mercerized cotton, acrylic, and sparkling acrylic-blend.
I chose the three brightest assortments to photograph, but there are three more packages of equally lovely colors.
I probably don’t need to tell you that the Bonbons would be perfect for making little knitted toys, or ornaments, or embellishments, or any other small project that only requires a little bit of yarn.
Perhaps you would like to win some of this yarn for yourself? The Lion Brand people just keep getting nicer, because they’re offering to give away three packages of Bonbons each to three winners! To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling us about the smallest thing you’ve ever knit. (Pretend bonus points if you include a link to a photo!) I’ll choose three winners at random on July 23rd.
This contest is only open to US residents.
Also, don’t forget about my Tiny Zombie class at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio on September 23rd—we’ll be using Bonbons to knit our zombies, of course!
