On the Needles and Off the Needles and On the Needles.....

So I have been working on Shirley McNulty's Little Black Shrug for the past week.  I'm using Ella Rae Silkience, which is a silk and cotton blend.  The yarn splits if I am not super careful.  The pattern is not hard but darn it I just keep losing count!!!  The black yarn is so hard for me to see the stitches I have ripped it out four times already.  I just realized I miscounted again.  Enough!!!  I really want this shrug and it is not that hard if I could just pay attention. 

I even added a life line and still messed up!!  I can do this!


  1. looks beautiful! I can only knit on black if I am sitting in the sunlight and I too am numberically challenged counting is so boring I use lots of markers

  2. Black is really challenging!!!
