I love knitting with tiny needles, I’m not talking about the width- which is size 0, I mean the actual needle length.
Too give you an idea at how small some of my Hiya Hiya Steel Sharp 9″ fixed circular knitting needles are, I snapped a picture, see, aren’t they tiny? The actual needle is less than 2″. These knitting needles are so tiny that if you were some distance away, it doesn’t look like I have anything in my hands.
Look at it compared to my 5″ Hiya Hiya sharp needle, huge difference right? Initially I purchased my 9″ Hiya Hiya needles to make socks/mittens, but to be perfectly honest, I much prefer knitting two at a time (when it comes to things such at that) and so the tiny 9″ needles have been set aside for other projects, such as tiny circular outfits for dolls and perhaps NICU babies?
Last week, I knit an outfit with my size 0 Hiya Hiya Steel Sharp 9″ fixed circular knitting needles and this week, I made a doll hat with my size 0 size 0 Hiya Hiya Steel Sharp 60″ fixed circular knitting needles. I couldn’t knit the hat with the 9″ knitting needles, since the hat would have been much too big for the doll that was receiving the knitted hat.
