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.

  1. I had to laugh…every time I start knitting with Lamb’s Pride worsted weight I have to check the label because I think maybe, just maybe I accidentally picked up the bulky weight instead. Love that stuff, though.
