Knitting: A touch of grey

Posted by on November 5, 2013 at 7:52 pm.

I normally have a lot of grey yarn in my yarn stash.

However, this past year I went through most of it with Christmas and various other occasions crocheting and knitting items for the fiber worthy. A few weeks ago when I looked through my yarn stash I realized I had only about 45 yards of grey yarn (I’m being generous) left.

While I haven’t found the appropriate shade of grey to upgrade my stash, it hasn’t stopped me from doing a lot of online yarn browsing. I’ve seen a lot of lovely yarn, that has caught my attention, but I haven’t purchased any. Tempted? Of course, but I’m very good at resisting yarn temptation.

My post title shares the same name as the song ‘Touch of Grey’ by the Grateful Dead. I loved the band and have listened to many of their songs.

    Nice song. Never heard any of their songs – I just assumed from the name of the band that they would be playing heavy metal rock…and I’m no longer into those songs – too noisy for an old man like me, not like when I was younger. Hehehehehehe!!!!

    @suituapui, It’s a great song. I listen to all types of music, I imagine as I get older that won’t change. It’s just one way to keep up with what interests some of the younger generation and I like music, yes even if it’s noisy. I can always lower the volume. 😉

    Great song, indeed! We just added it to our library on our 70’s/80s station here!

    @Jennifer, I have to add it to my iPod, you’d think I’d have it on their already, but I checked and it isn’t on there. I’ll have to change that. 😉 For some reason, whenever I hear this song, I usually think of when Jerry Garcia was on Roseanne.
