After listening to episode 16 of Cast-on ini the car, guest hosted by crotcheter Sage Tyrtle, I was all about getting home and finding out more about Sage’s miniature crochet. There’s not a lot out there in webland about Sage. She does have a podcast by the name of Quirky Nomads and is just as engaging here as at Cast-on. If you haven’t listened to episode 16 of Cast-on yet, I highly recommend it. Sage is a beautiful story teller and had me completely entranced and she chose an excellent song by Jim’s Big Ego “Stress”, had me laughing in the car.

So I emailed Sage and she has been kind enough to share these pictures with us. Amazing work.

Currently Sage can’t make miniature crochet so she now crochets hats and bags and gives them away. Here’s a current hat. Great detail and colour.

Thank you for sharing Sage’s work. I also was intrigued after listening to the Cast-On episode she hosted. The hat is just amazing!

Oh my gosh. I listened to that podcast too, but I had no idea of how DETAILED the tiny pieces would be! I am in awe.
