Black and grey are the new black.
I called several yarn stores today looking for 2 skeins of Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted Weight (in a pig’s eye it’s worsted weight – in my opinion worsted weight is 5st=1”, not 4st=1”) Deep Charcoal. I decided I didn’t want to use black for the Crazy Stripe Afghan because I thought it would be too stark.
Not a skein to be found. Apparently blacks and greys are selling like hotcakes this season.
