The Black Hole

Help!!!! I fallen into a black hole and can’t get out!

It is spring…..I should be knitting spring colors, but not me, nope. I am knitting everything black, a summer cowl, a black cotton sweater, a lacey black shawl. Black goes with everything…..including more black.

I knew I was doomed when at knit nite I was not at the table but my  knitting was and someone comes in and immediately recognizes my knitting because it is “Black”. That same night, when I tried to buy black yarn….the knit nite group put me in a time out and would not let me buy black……”come on add a little color” they screamed all at the same time! “You look so good in color”

So I am doing my best to crawl out of the black hole…..the black summer weight cowl is finished.

The pattern is Churchmouse’s Mohair Bias Loop, in Debbie Bliss Party Angel.


The black cotton sweater is also finished. It is  from the 2012 Knit.Wear Magazine, the Linen and Lace Cardigan, in Hemp for Knitting #210 Hempton.


The lacey black shawl is still on the needles and will be for awhile. It is a gift for a friend, but is an easy piece to carryon for airplane knitting. The pattern is Churchmouse’s Smocked Lace Wrap in Isagar #1


In the meantime, I listened to my knit nite friends and have jumped forward into project with color…….Carol Sunday’s pattern Clair de Lune in Shibui Knits Linen. The color is Graphite, not black……right.

I said I was crawling out of the Black Hole….
