And then it happened ...

... just like that ... ISAGER alpaca merino in black was in my stash ... I cast on for BLAER en noir ... funny because believing others I had made a big deal about abstaining from knitting with black yarn because you know ... you can't read your knitting ... it was a bit daunting with the itty bitty GILIPEYSA in midnight navy and then just like that I cast on in black alpaca merino on the 3.5 mm needles ... with a lace pattern in the yoke ... and guess what ... it ain't half bad ... I can read my knitting and am moving right along ... taking back all I have said about knitting with black yarn ... you might ask me again when picking up stitches for the fronts!!!

BLAER not fair mais noir ... this one ... not light but black ... K1, P1 ribbing for the edgings ... otherwise as before ... or wait ... the short row shaping for the back was inverted ... smoother that way!
