When a black cardigan is not the answer

We had a blackout tonight. Everything just went black when the power shut off – lamps, the TV, wifi, everything. If you are going to have a blackout, mid-June is the best time since it’s so light outside anyway. Indoors is a bit dusky but you can still see to do most things, especially if you sit by the window. If I hold a book up to the light coming in from the window I can see to read.

What I can’t do though is to knit on my black cardigan. Had I picked a different color it wouldn’t have been a problem (well, navy would be hard too) but now, with my black yarn, it’s simply not possible. I’ll probably just go to bed instead.

And to think I’m less than a sleeve from finished!
