blackwork fill-in patterns from Lesley Wilkins Beginner’s Guide to Blackwork - cross stitch I've been planning a largeish-scale blackwork project. These may come in handy.as an alternative, use a different colour of embroidery floss.
Tejidos - Knitted 2 - Ravelry: Tweed Hooded Neckwarmer pattern by Vanessa Ewing. This is a free pattern on Ravelry, and would be great for a beginning knitter or for someone who likes to knit & chat, knit & watch a movie, knit & read, etc. So romantic!
