Knitting and chemistry...too perfect for words...

Well this is my entry to the Tiny Things Challenge. (Of course after seeing some of these entries I was wary about entering but since I already made it and it's too cute to not share, what the hey I'll go for it!) Oh and I will apologize now for the size and quality of the photos! They are cell phone pictures and not very good ones at that!  Embarrassed
When the challenge was first posted I started thinking about what I could make that was tiny, but still adorable.  Since Valentine's Day was around then I decided something love-themed would be cute.  I also started wondering if I could knit with crochet thread...I could it just makes my eyes and hands yell at me afterwards!  Cheesy Thus this little guy was born:

i made him using the free pattern found here:
http://mochimochiland.com/weblog/category/free-patterns/
It's on the second page, and is called "Hearts" I used size 1 knitting needles and size 10 crochet cotton in a light pink.  I then stuffed it and attached a band to the back so that it could be a ring.  The band is just a row of single crochet, then one of double crochet, and then one of single crochet.  This picture should show that he is 3-D:


I really just wanted a cute heart ring to match some heart earrings I had so that's why I decided to make a ring. And to show the size (just about 1 inch in all directions):


Oh and the eyes and smile were just drawn on with a fine tip sharpie! Well that's my entry and I hope you all like it !! Please vote for me!  Grin
