althea crome's teeny-tiny knitted jumpers


Some people enjoy extreme sports; others enjoy extreme knitting. The latter is fibre artist Althea Crome's specialty. From her home in Indiana, Althea uses traditional knitting techniques and a bevy of ultra-fine threads to craft miniscule jumpers that fit in the palm of your hand. Instead of conventional knitting needles, Anthea uses surgical wire, which allows her to cram in 80 stitches per inch. If that wasn't impressive enough, she also makes a collection of 'micro minis' – even teensier knits that barely cover a fingertip. It's mind boggling, really.
