The better way to start the New Year

Oh gosh, 2010 is already here, can you believe it??
I hope everyone’s new year is off to a great start!
I tried to start in the best way making something that can be considered "totally insane".
My son is so fascinated by nesting dolls. I often find him playing with a Matrioska doll that my father bought me when I was a child, hiding all kind of stuff into the dolls.
He's a sort of a little pack rat that always finds interesting things (in his opinion) in my studio's trash basket!
So, looking at the littlest Matrioska I decided to make a crocheted one, and she turned out soooo small:

Yeah, that's the top of my finger and the little doll is just 10mm tall (0.39"), I can even breath her! She's made with a 0.4mm hook, that means something as thin as a little pin, and sewing thread.
Needless to say, I had to hide her from my son's little fingers!
