Black Like My Heart

Wicked

Time to get away from all of that tricky colorwork in favor of a relatively plain black sweater. The pattern is Wicked from Zephyr Style. It's knit top down, with a wide cable neck and lots of options--I'm planning to knit long sleeves, and no front pocket, but I like the look of the short-sleeve version too. The yarn is Brown Sheep Cotton Wool in color CW-005 Cavern. I'm using Knitpicks Options US #6 needles, which are great but very, very pointy--ouch! The neckline cables are knit without a cable needle, which was very easy with the Knitpicks.

I'm hoping to make a lot of progress on this in the next couple of days, while I wait for my first Rockin' Sock Club package to arrive!

I've been seeing this pop up all over blogland. I do like that you pick black for yours!

This is going to be absolutely beautiful - what an amazing pattern, and I sure love the fact that you picked black for it, this makes it even more unique. Gorgeous!

Thanks for the comments! I tend to wear lots of blacks and greys, so hopefully I'll get a lot of use out of this sweater . . . assuming that I'm knitting at the right gauge . . .
