Tiny Wreath

Winning caption by Lydia:

A knitter allergic to holiday greens
Wanted a wreath for her door.
She started to knit like a knitting machine,
Sitting while knitting some more.
But when it was finished
Excitement diminished
As she went berserk as she looked at her work:
Instead of using a proper-size yarn
She had knitted with finger-weight yarn!
This wreath, on her door, could barely be seen!
So in frustration,
In pure desperation,
She decided to knit a nativity scene.

Today’s Tiny Mochi was inspired by our first place winner in the photo contest!

  1. Tiny wreath is hoping that his new red bow might be just the thing to catch the eye of the Tiny Angel. Now if only he could find some tiny mistletoe!

  2. I don’t have a caption, I just wanted to say how much I LOVE this guy! I want to hang one on every door…

  3. I cant beat the “I wreath you” caption but wondered where I can get this pattern? I didn’t see it on the site. Is it in any of your books?

  4. Glad you like it, Deb! I just whipped it up this morning, so there’s no pattern. But I hope to make one for it someday!

  5. Just wanted to say how cute it is, but I won’t be able to think of a good caption until tomorrow morning when I am in the shower, and I won’t remember it by the time I get to the computer. :)

    (I’ve been whipping up a bunch of gnomes from your Teeny Tiny Mochi-Mochi book… everyone loves them.)

  6. tiny wreath asks you to please knock gently – gingerbread house doors are fragile!

    since amanda’s comment is sure to win, i might just have to buy that tape measure for myself. so cute!

  7. not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse, because the door of their house was adorned with a wreath

  8. His favorite movie is “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, when the wreath is attacking the lady in the rocking chair.

    This is totally what I thought of when I saw the photo!

  10. It is totally cute! It would look smashing with some fluffy yarn so it’s a bit more poofy! Now for a la caption:

    “This tiny wreath is what you call a miniture, ok class? Now say miniture!”

    “Mini-Wreath! Mini-Wreath!”

  11. although tiny wreath is small, he brightens up spirits w/ his big holiday cheer for his mochimochi friends in all sizes, tiny or small ! :)

  12. It’s almost Christmas so tiny wreath needs to remember to put his festive tie on, not that gaudy one from Halloween.

  13. This tiny wreath got confused when he heard he needed to be hung up…he drank too much egg nog and ended up a little hungover.

    I need this pattern!!

  14. Oh Christmas wreath, Oh Christmas wreath,
    How lovely is your tiny bow,
    Oh Christmas wreath, Oh Christmas wreath,
    You’re small enough to fit on someone’s toe!

  15. It totally looks like the wreath is waiting to be filled with cookies, cookie monster style. I imagine a tiny little voice squealing “FEED ME!!!”.

    Not a chance past this one though!

  18. i cant think of a caption. this is the best i got:
    tiny wreath singing: knit it!
    i say knit it!
    into a shape
    purl it up
    or knit straight!
    yarn over
    knit ahead
    try to bind off
    its not to late
    to knit it
    knit it good
    from the song whip it
    by devo

  19. Little wreath just wants to show spirit,
    but the big wreaths just don’t want to hear it.
    He is the most jolly,
    but in such a small body,
    he just isn’t allowed in the festivities.

  20. Tiny Wreath is cute and green
    But don’t mistaken him for a frog
    He’s got a shiny sheen
    Just please don’t hang him on your dog

  21. The wreath is so itty-bitty,
    while the others aren’t so witty.
    They aren’t made by man,
    but he is knit by hand!
