So Big, So Tiny

I don't remember why, but a few Christmases ago, my niece Colleen repeated the phrase "so big, so tiny" about 20 times a minute. She was maybe a year and a half old, and for some reason it just took hold of her. I get it now. Big and tiny just go together.

I've been working on a second Juliet, for myself this time, and I love it. I've been dying to get my hands on this yarn for a while, and having knit a Juliet for Maudie I just had to have my own. But it's so big. The needles are big, the Cashmerino Superchunky is big; the whole endeavor just started to seem big. And heavy.

Enter the Lace Ribbon Scarf, currently the most popular project on Ravelry, and rightly so. It's gorgeous, springy, so light, and those stitches are so tiny! A 3 needle? After the 10.5, that 3 is light as air! I saw that scarf and thought it's just so tiny -- I could take it with me anywhere, keep it in my car, on my nightstand.

Yes, this scarf is now my constant companion. I'm using the rest of the Colinette Jitterbug I have left from the Soba Noodle Bainbridge and love it. When the yarn is gone, the scarf is done. And then back to Juliet...

And speaking of tiny, the Circle of Friends Blanket is finished and has been gifted! Pix to follow soon.

I just love that shell pink Colinette, I can't wait to see more of that scarf. I want to start it but am afraid that it will turn into another endless Chevron scenario...

That scarf is off to a very pretty start. I love that soft pink, such a sweet color.
Happy knitting-
