Tiny Things

Posted by Meghan on

Posted on March 5th, 2014 by Meghan

What is it about tiny things that makes them so adorable, causing an otherwise rational person to do something, well…irrational? I asked myself this question when I saw Ysolda Teague had released her popularLiesl pattern in wee size, called wee Liesl. Obviously I was quite smitten with it as I immediately dove into my remnant skeins of Tosh Merino Light and cast-on. I don’t know what possessed me to do this since I have no friends that are pregnant nor have any little ones myself. It must be the tiny factor that blinded me from all logic and reason. So I forged ahead into making this wee sweater with no purpose other than to have created something adorable and tiny in the end. Wee Liesl might the first baby sweater in a long time that has made me immediately cast-on, but I have compiled a list over the years of tiny sweaters that I think are adorable, but more importantly, well-designed, smart and sophisticated. Why should I keep it all to myself?! So here is a list of my favorite wee baby sweaters for all of those who like tiny things:
