I have been particularly inspired by the olympics this summer--amazed to see so many things in common among the athletes. A sense of human curiosity and an unstoppable desire to test their personal limits. But beyond a personal goal so many willingly struggle through almost unbearable physical strain to answer a universal curiosity "how fast, how long and how far can you go?"

Curiosity is what made me see if I could use a .009" wire to knit these tiny 1:144 scale cardigans (this is dollhouse for a dollhouse scale). There are approximately 80 stitches per inch. Nano-knitting is not on the Olympic roster yet, but but perhaps we can at least get it into the Guiness books!
