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?
