A Lot of Black
Well I thought I should give you a little taste of what's on my needles. My main project right now is Puffin from Kate Davies book Colours of Shetland. You didn't think there was only one project on my needles, did you?!

98 rounds of black stockinette.
98 rounds of black stockinette,
98 rounds of black.

And, if you were wondering, yes both the book and yarn kit for this sweater are available from Sheeps Ahoy.
