I figure I’ve put easily over sixty hours into that undyed afghan at this point and tonight I realized that Cat Stevens’ song “Into White” sings in my head when I’m knitting it. Like, All. The. Time. It wasn’t the knitting I was a little bored with, it was its soundtrack. The logical thing to do would be simply to turn on the stereo and drown it out with something else, but, I didn’t. Too busy getting to the end of this row. And the next. And the next.

So I tried to come up with songs I knew that had the relevant word “white” in them, just for kicks. And presto! New earworm!

“Knights in white satin,” (so far so good) “never reaching the end….”  Oh, mannnn….

My first thought was “Let it Snow”! Perhaps White Christmas would be a bit better. (-:

And there’s always The Beatles’ White Album

All I can come up with is Emotional Rescue, by the Rolling Stones…you know, that middle part where Mick talks about being your “knight in shining armor, coming to your emotional rescue…” Well, I figure my knight MUST be riding a white horse! (Welcome to my world…lol!)

“Letters half written…never meaning to send?” 🙂

I thought of Billy Idol, too, but the lyrics were different than the original.

“It’s a nice day for a white afghan!”
