I usually like to use lots of colour in my crochet and knitting, but had a little play around with some black yarn a few weeks ago and made a couple of pictures:
These inspired me to have a go at making a scarf in a similar style (it does feel like winter here after all!).
I'm aiming for lots of texture and an irregular shape, but I'm not sure it's irregular enough at the moment. I have a feeling it's either going to look great or be a complete disaster, but I'll let you know once it's finished!
