it's awesome! (and oh my, I've just spent a few
minutes hours! looking at Ravelry to grab more inspiration ideas...and I'm even more in love with it now).
Pebble is a blend of recycled silk, extra fine merino and cashmere (48%/36%/16% if you're keeping score), Shibui lists it as a "heavy laceweight" at 224 yards/25 grams and a suggested gauge of 26 st/4 inches on size 3 needles. To me, that gauge says "light sport/heavy fingering". I swatched it on US 4s and got 23 st/31 rows to 4 inches.

And that made me very happy because that's the listed gauge for Relax (which I've had in my favorites since I saw it knit in Shibui Cima). When I first knit and blocked the swatch I thought the gauge was too open; but my daughter - who's the planned recipient of the sweater - said no. The wide neckline means she'll wear a camisole (at least) under it anyway and it's oversized...so lightweight is good. I'm halfway up the front (yes, this sweater is knit in pieces and no, I don't have issues with that!) and yes, I think she's right! stay tuned!
Of course an oversized sweater on size 4 needles might be more ... knitting/yarn/work... than you want.
How about a colorwork hat (the pattern is free)? This is Cliff...yes it's a lot of yarn (5 colors = 5 skeins) but it's knit double stranded. I promise it won't seem like laceweight yarn! I love the colors in fiddlehead's version.

Or a very cool textured/shaped hat...with a matching asymmetrical scarf? This is Peak. It looks fabulous knit double stranded in a single color, but I love the marled effect of mixing two colors.

I hope you'll give it try - and if you do, please share your project...on Ravelry, Facebook or Twitter.
