Mini Sweater

Mini Sweater Ornament
I'm obsessed with this mini sweater and mini hanger. I made it from this Berroco pattern which you should really look at because they have a little tree covered in sweaters! Since I don't have a tree my plan is to make a bunch of these into a sweater garland. But since it took me months to get around to making just one, that may not happen for a while.

I think it's pretty obvious why this cozy little sweater is so cute: It's MINI! One of the most elementary rules of life is that anything in miniature is cute. Think of the smart car, mini erasers, toy poodles, etc. All mini, and all generally accepted to be cute. Granted, those tiny dogs can go either way, but you get the idea.

Absolutely the cutest thing ever! How about a mini-clothesline of mini-sweaters on mini-hangers ...

Lou, you have to see this!

it's "an installation inspired by American soldiers lost in the Iraq war" but it is strings of mini red sweaters hanging in trees. i think there are many now but the original was right here in Bernal Heights.

this blog actually has better photos:
