I admit, it's a TON better with the black trim. In person the black doesn't look as odd as it does here. I asked the man here if it still looked dirty and he said no so there may be hope. I'm just not in love with it though. I think they will become actual longies and hopefully they will grow on me. If not, oh well. I'm just happy they aren't a larger size and take longer to knit. Two or three days of tv knitting is nothing. Oddly enough, my gauge on both yarns is the same. usually my body yarn is thicker so it's just a tad off. This however is the same even though the black is Cascade 220 (I think....seems all my solid yarn is these days) and the other is not.
I need to get going on covers. I have about 12 weeks left and have one pair done. That's it. Well one and a half is you count the above pair. Remember my "goal"? I do. 4 pairs of PP (either shorties or longies....probably 2 of each) and 4 wraps. I have one pair of PP. What does that leave me with? A lot of knitting.
