Wicked black

I joined up a week or so ago after finally picking out the pattern I want to knit first from this incredible book. I love so many of the shawls that it was difficult to decide where to start. I limited my choice this time to only shawls that basically have no special patterning on the reverse side. I'll be knitting this shawl in black, so I wanted to make it as straight forward as possible.

Which one did I choose? Melon. I think it'll be wicked in black. So, that's what I bought. Rowan's Kidsilk Haze in Wicked, which is a jet black yarn. It swallows the light. I think it actually looks blacker out in the sun than it does under artificial light, if that's possible.



I love it.

Waiting to cast on until I finish up the afghan for mom, but that should be soon, at the rate it's going. Which is good. Because my needles are itching to get into this incredible yarn, and get going!

If you want to find out about my shopping trip with my friend Kristie, and see another picture of the yarn, it's on my blog.

Thanks so much for putting another yarn on my "Need to purchase" list. Can't wait to see the Melon shawl in black!
