A Sea of Darkness

Late this afternoon, quite appropriately for Easter I thought, the sky turned black.


Just now there's the very distant sound of thunder, somewhere out over the ranges I imagine. It's a good night for bunking down in the glow of candles.


Which also suggests it'll be a good night for knitting, but there's one small concern I have about this. Everything I'm knitting right now is either black or very, very dark.

Exhibit A. Myrtle Leaf Shawl.


Exhibit B. BlackRose Socks.


Exhibit C. Tangled Yoke Cardigan.

While lovely, none of these really lend themselves to night time knitting.

All the while I've been thinking this, two skeins are calling to me from where they sit decoratively on the coffee table in the centre of my lounge room.


I think in the interests of ocular-preservation, I really need to cast on something new with this koigu, don't I? It's the kindest thing I could do really.
