Slip stitch is next on my list of Things To Learn. But like most things I'm doing it backward. I've already done a little bit of Fair Isle and a little of intarsia... (neither of them very well I should add). But hey... I'm the guy that decided that black cotton yarn would be a GREAT thing to start off with. :masochist:
