When I went to Stitches South, I bought all kinds of pretty yarn. But my favorite by far was the Tomato Frog Bugga. So absolutely luscious. It's an MCN blend - merino, cashmere, & nylon. And it's really just love in the form of yarn. And it's red. The most beautiful semi-solid red with so much depth. And I made it into this:
One skein of Bugga, size 7 needles, and lovely lace patterns to edge the top and bottom worked side-to-side in one piece.
This knit up crazy fast - even for me. I think it was that the yarn was just that nice to work with. And even when I soaked, there was only the faintest tinge of red in the water - which is just unheard of. At Sanguine Gryphon, they do it up right.
