My Bugga! adventure begins now.

Bugga! yes folks, that exclamation point is intentional and rightly so.  Bugga! is MCN… which means that this yarn is 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere (ooh la la) and 10% nylon.  Warm, durable and luxurious!  I never thought that durable and luxurious could ever go together:)

I have to say though that even thought it is labeled ‘sock yarn’, it doesn’t feel like sock yarn more like a light sportweight and since I am not afraid of skinny yarn (hello Geodesic and Paper Dolls!), knitting with this yarn should be lovely too.  

I just picked the wrong season to use my Bugga! to knit this number.  If I hadn’t dawdled like I did with my Audrey, I would have knit this pattern when it was still warm out.  But life, lemons, lemonade etc etc!

Emelie was a gift from a wonderful friend.  She saw this pattern sitting in my Ravelry faves and she also knows all about my cardigan obsession (ahem::IntSweMoDo::ahem)  That was so thoughtful and sweet of her and she’s a knitter too.  Thanks so much, dear friend:)

Swatch? Check!  The color is a bit off in these pictures.  The pink is a bit more plumy and less pepto.  My first up close encounter with Sanguine Gryphon goodies.

Let the knitting begin.

Oh oh, I got new yarnz from our Seattle trip this weekend.  Show and tell soon, ok?

    Yum yum yummay!!!
    You swatched and you cut the yarn off the skein? I’d have saved every bit of this yarn and used it up to knit my cardi! Good job though.

    I’m pulling out the IKEA bins tomorrow so will be playing along with you with some of my Bugga! too.
