It’s a good thing I don’t have many friends like Denise. That girl keeps me in trouble.
Yesterday I was working so hard to get a top quilted. I wasn’t hanging out on the computer wasting my time . . like some folks apparently do. I won’t name any names!
Last year, or was it the year before, apparently we both bought enough yarn from Eat, Sleep, Knit that we are permanent members of the advance notice club, though that’s not the official name of the group. I knew ESK was getting a new line of yarn in and had pretty much figured out that it was going to be Cephalopod.
Several years ago there was a company called The Sanguine Gryphon. They made “Bugga” yarn which is a heavy fingering weight, 70% Merino/20% Cashmere/10% Nylon. Need I say more than “cashmere”? Bugga was a much sought after yarn. Shops that carried it sold out of it as soon as it was in stock. Buying from the company direct was not easy. As soon as they announced they had a certain color, it was gone. I was spending more time trying to snag a few skeins of Bugga than I was knitting.
Then, the Sanguine Gryphon folks went separate ways and one of the partners maintained the Bugga line but none of the places I shop carried it . . til yesterday.
I knew the yarn was going to be put on ESK’s website yesterday but in my effort to get that top quilted, I wasn’t even thinking about it til I got this email from Denise:
So have you ordered your Bugga??? As usual, I’m not sayin I did but if I were to do so I particularly like:
Frog Leged Leaf Beetle
Eurota Purple Wing
So, I rushed over to the website and, well . . I’m not saying if I bought anything or not, and I’m not saying if I placed more than one order but I am saying . . I may call in sick on Friday and not do a Yarn Report!
