Inspiration: Small Projects

I feel like I’ve been working on giant, slow projects for the last three months.  My cable sweater is just about done (finally).  And, I’ve been working on a couple secret projects (designs that aren’t quite finished yet), and they’re all HUGE!  I guess I just have a thing for oversized sweaters, blankets, and anything that takes more than a dozen skeins of yarn. And, I’m thinking my Ravellenic Games project is going to be pretty big, too!

But sometimes you just want to knit something quick.  Something fun and easy.  And since I’m not “supposed to” be spending my knitting time on fun little things, let’s look at adorable pictures instead.  (OK, I might take a break this afternoon and make up a tiny something… don’t tell my boss.)

These tiny bunnies are too cute.  I love their two-tone fur, and their teeny pink noses.

    Ooooh, can’t wait to see your new designs and the finished cable sweater!
    I have 2 big projects going at the moment, my 2nd Azel Pullover from Heidi May, and the knitpicks Hue Shift Afghan.
    Got a book from the library on how to knit amurigumi stuff (hope I spelled that right lol!) So when I feel the need, I can knit small with that. 🙂
