I'm curious what yarn you all are planning to use for Blackrose! I've sort of settled on a merino/nylon blend I bought on Etsy, which is called 'Black Coffee' and is a muted blend of browns and grays. It's a bit bigger than the average skein of sock yarn and I'm hoping it's enough to do the wristlets as well as the socks. I haven't wound it into a ball yet.

If you've already started knitting, I would like to see pictures! (Even if you haven't, I love looking at yarn and would like to see pictures of your yarn balls.)

I'm having a really hard time deciding which yarn to use! This always happens to me; I get weirdly anxious about "using up" yarn.

I think I have the choice narrowed down to navy-blue Regia or my precious StR Thraven (black with greenish patches). I'm in the mood to work with a brighter colour, however, so -- *hands*

I vote you use Regia because I just bought some Thraven for this project and we should mix things up around here :-)

I think I finally have some yarn for this: Mondial Bamboo in varigated greys. It appears to be thicker than the suggested weight, but I fell in love with the yarn and it's soft and I'll just try it :)
