Hi, my name is Oskar, the rallye mouse and I am a big boy, 5cm (1,9 inches) from food to ear.

I am made of miniature fabric and ultra suede and my five disc joints make me very flexible in my rallye car. With my 3mm glass eyes and can see the racecourse very clear.
The stylish sweater is handknitted with 0.8mm (UK 21) miniature knitting needles and I just love my tiny aviator cap.
My rallye car is made of a mint drops tin and it is very fast and comfy.

Would you like to start racing with me?? I am on Bearpile:

If you post a miniature sheep on a sugar cube, they can be just absolutely sweet!!
This is one of my newest miniature sheep, called "Moppelchen".
It is 1,7cm = 0,7" tall and made of plush and Ultra Suede, it has 1mm bead eyes and is filled with sheep wool.
My motto:
A life without tweezers is possible but absolutely useless :-)
I hope this photo will make you smile...

This was my entry for the Golden George In Münster/Germany in April. Sadly I was not nominated but I am very proud of my work and I would like to know what you think about it.
The cake ist sewn from felt and has a diameter of 20cm (8"), all fruits and baisers are sewn as well, the blueberries are 1cm (0.4") in diameter.
All mice and bears are 5way disc-jointed. The tallest mouse is 8cm (3.2") and the smallest one is 4,5cm (1.8").
The busy bears which are carring the strawberry are 7cm (2.8").
Sweaters and hats are handknitted with needle size 0.8mm (UK 21) and pure wool.
I think this display gives you a summer feeling and the taste of strawberries :-)
So, what do you think?
Have a lovely weekend,
Sabine

This gives you just the perfect summer feeling:
The little crab Eduard is made from Ultrasuede and measures just 3,5cm/1.3 inches.
His friends the clownfish are really tiny, they are just 1,5cm/0.6 inches.
The seagull is watching them, it is 2,5cm/1 inch tall and made from Vintage Rayon.
The whole shell is 7x4,5cm /  2.7x1.7 inches tall.
A single thread of cross stitch yarn is used to crochet the coral.
I just love it to make unusual miniatures :-)

Just 22 days to go until the Teddybear Total will open its doors to all bear addicts and arctophiles...
I was just wondering if some of you are planning to visit this great event????
Nearly 300 exhibitors will show their furry friends- and of course I will be there with my miniatures as well :-)

Hopefully it will stay like this :-)

Meet Hildchen and her little wool suppliers.
She stands 3.2“ (8cm) tall and made of ivory colored longpile fabric.
Hildchen is 5-way disc jointed, arms and legs are wired and she is filled with sheep wool.

Cardigan and socks are knitted with miniature knitting needles (0.7mm) from hand dyed fine pure wool.
The miniature sheep are between 0.6” 1.2” (1,5 – 3cm) tall. They are made from Smokey Longpile, Vintage Rayon and Ultra Suede.
The black and the white one are old enough to give their wool for the scarf but the little brown one has to wait for another year.

Yes Rikki, I know its different to the way we knit. A couple of years ago people where looking for new ways to knit socks,because they had problems to knit the heel.
The spiral sock is a kind of tube sock.All you have to do is knit and perl.For example:then you knit 4,perl 4,knit 4, perl 4 and so on.
After 4 rows you change the pattern:
On 5th round, work P5 once,  so ribs move over 1 stitch.
There are lots of free patterns on Ravelry:

We did not have any snow yet but we are living near Berlin but further south its probably different  bear_thumb

Thats how I started my miniature knitting- knitting on pins  bear_innocent
But as I started to knit jumpers and dresses, pins are to short for the amount of stitches.
A friend of mine from Australia send me my first miniature knitting needles, now we produce them ourself.
The 0.8mm needles are really good.I also have 0.6mm ones.But they are extremly sharp.I use them for really fine knitting, together with a single thread of cross stitch yarn.  bear_thumb
On my shows I always have magnifying glasses with me, so the visitors can see the tiny details of the knitting  bear_grin
