The first incarnation of Coquille is now a shop sample. I'll need to retrieve it for the grand photo at the end of the KAL. This knit pattern is just ripe for playing with color and possibly playing around with stitch patterns.
It turns out that my fear of black yarn and night time knitting is much worse than the actual knitting of black yarn in the daylight. Oh, well. Live and learn.
Yes, the black fingering has turned out to be a cinch.
Wish I could say the same about a certain ball of fluff that presented the dreaded knot and abrupt color change in exactly the wrong spot. Naturally, the knot appeared about 8:30 pm in the dark.
[insert dramatic sigh]
PS - don't bother clicking on the knot photo of angst trying to read my notes. I save paper by only printing one copy of a pattern and using it for every incarnation. So those are notes related to more than one shawl. It is perfectly OK. Just like my filing system, I understand each dot, number and date reference.
