Knitting with black yarn 

Anyone who’s knitted with dark colours understands the challenges of using black yarn. We suggest knitting in a well-lit area as it can be difficult to see stitch definition and can put strain on the eyes. Place a white pillowcase or sheet behind your project so you can see clearly. Another solution is to knit with bright or shiny needles. One of the good things about dark yarn is that it can hide mistakes quite well!
