Twist Barbie (black) socks done!

I just finished my black socks! Of course since Shannon was so generous with the Wool Ease I still have enough left to make another pair!

Its fuzzy, and black!

I'm making a sweater, out of black fuzzy soft Sirdar Snowflake. 99% of people HATE working with this yarn and I understand. However, once you get past the initial 5 rows, it goes much easier. You just need to knit SLOW.

Wow, two black projects at once?!

I just started my socks for the Socktoberfest and I figured I would post them here too since they are black! I have a skein of black Wool Ease burning a hole in my yarn stash, and I needed to start some socks so I cast on last night. So far my manufactured pattern is working out okay, but you can't tell because they're black! Ha!

Black Blackberry!

I don't have photos yet, but I've started Blackberry from the latest Knitty in my black (and white and a bit of grey) Classic Elite Gatsby. It is so soft, and a joy to knit with. So far I'm done with the back and have started one sleeve. After that is another sleeve, two fronts, then sew it up and add ribbing (like the OSW).

I did it!

I finished my first non-shrug wearable item! I finished my black Tivoli with only a few mistakes to speak of, but since black hides a multitude of sins, hopefully no one will notice. I was going to post the picture here but I forgot, so I'll just point you to my blog Multitasking for the horrible photo I was able to take with my camera.

what i'm making

Here's (finally) a picture of what I'm making. It's the strap/bottom of the Monk's Travel Satchel. Not getting very far very fast...

In the Black

I just started knitting a black sweater from a book I got - nothing fancy - but I will post pics as soon as I have something to post!
