Although I have always been a big fan of little things (hi, honey!), cute generally doesn’t get it done for me. However, these minuscule crocheted animals are so tiny and so perfect that I must make them mine. This one actually extracted from me the exact sound “squee!” Never really understood that before. Turns out it’s a thing.
I can’t even imagine the dexterity (not to mention the superhero-like eyesight) involved in making these diminutive masterpieces. The animals are made by a Vietnamese family of 5. The name, Su Ami, is the nickname of the youngest member who is 10. She apparently makes a lot of the company’s design decisions, and she’s doing a helluva job.
If I had buckets of money to burn, I’d keep a supply of them on my person at all times to drop in unsuspecting people’s pockets. How happy would you be to find a micro-mini penguin in your pocket? It’d sure make my day.
I’m in real trouble here. This is going to be a very expensive habit. I thought I could maybe resist, then I saw Hobbes. Squee! Damnit, there I go again. Help!
