One thing I've found helpful is to put something white in my lap when knitting black/dark colors. I found this especially useful recently when trying to pick up stitches in a black piece. The white background reflects whatever available light you have making it easier to see where the holes are. And since I'm not nearly dextrous enough to hold a thing up to the light and find a hole and cram 2 stitches into it all at once, this was a lifesaver. But generally speaking, yeah... good light is a requirement. *sigh* If only I didn't like black so well... Whatcha gonna do?
