Black Work A Foot...

Since 2 more puffy stripes have been knit, and now it's to black,black, black work.

The yarns are all Patons Krow sock yarns—and I've knit with this black before—it reminds me of a Monty Python skit—about black pudding—where even the white bits are black.

It's very deep, matt black the swallows all light. It's hard to see the stitches. Its' impossible to see mistakes (I suppose this could be a good thing!)

These socks are rapidly progressing into day time knitting only socks—even my full spectrum (not an Ott brands—but very similar) light doesn't do much.

But they are happy socks--I like them! I like the puffy stripes, the graduated colors, the simplicity. I like that I have a hope of finishing them before the month is ended!
