Sorry Jan. They do look rather cute and yes, I know they're not for wearing. I just don't use circulars or dpns, so to start at this stage, so close to Christmas, would be rather challenging.
I have all of 1 1/2 sides of 1 tiny Christmas tree completed and will be very pleased with myself if I manage to complete 2 complete trees, but am thinking it can just be the start of a mini Christmas tree collection. Maybe I should try the same with the little socks.
Was it here or somewhere else that someone talked about using dpns for small projects? The reason why I ask is that I am actually using small, metal needles for my mini trees project. I found them in a yarn shop. In fact, I saw the plastic version, but when I brought them to the till, the cashier told me they were also available in metal.
