Tuesday Treasure

Tuesday rolls 'round again and I'd like to introduce my newest treasure. This teeny tiny knitted jumper is only a few centimetres across. It even has a button and buttonhole on the back of the neck. The delightful lady who sold this to me showed me the needles she uses to knit such tiny things. Sort of wooden handles with pins protruding from the ends. I consider this find a treasure and it  cost me less than half an hours wage, (believe me, that's a pittance) I'm sure I couldn't knit it in half an hour!

Pop over to Clare's blog to see some other Tuesday Treasues

I found my treasure at the WA Craft, Quilt and Stitch Show in Perth on Saturday along with some other loot.
Not a lot really, I was very restrained but I did buy some practical black thread and a glue pen, a birdie Christmas decoration, an embroidered inchie scissor fob, some yummy dyed wool and silk sari strips AND no less than FOUR pieces of bling to adorn my neck. What was I thinking!
