That black sparkle is SOOOO pretty. I think you are going to love it. I usually avoid trying to make anything black....for one thing, I have a problem "seeing" the stitches in black yarn......but the main reason is that I have two cats and a WHITE dog that most nights share my love seat with me! Black doesn't stay black for long. And that sparkle is really too petty to mess up with dog/cat hair. On the other hand.....white sparkle might work for me....animal hair would be hidden.....hummmm. Oh I forgot.....I already bought my yarn!!!!!
