Why is it that we want the things the most that are the hardest to get? It isn’t like I sit around and desire the things I can’t have but it seems that through the years, I’ve had an attachment to the things that require the most effort to get. I definitely don’t need another sewing machine but if ever I come across a decent deal on a Singer 301 or a Featherweight, I’m getting it . . just can’t pass it up.
Wollmeise yarn is another thing. Any time there’s a Wollmeise update, I’m snagging whatever I can get, even though I have more than I’ll probably ever use. Then there was Bugga yarn. It was so hard to get. Here’s a post from back in 2010 when the Bugga obsession was in full swing. As usual, I didn’t pay a lot of attention to details but the original company, The Sanguine Gryphon split or closed and two companies formed. One was Cephalapod Yarns and the other was The Verdant Gryphon. The Loopy Ewe carries a bit of The Verdant Gryphon’s Bugga and Eat, Sleep, Knit carried a Cephalapod’s Bugga and Skinny Bugga.
Through the years, I’ve managed to collect quite a bit of Bugga yarn.
Yes, it’s an obsession. The list is longer. You’ve seen enough to know . . I need no more!
Only recently have I begun collecting Skinny Bugga. The problem . . I know you’re about to ask where I’m going with all this . . Cephalapod is closing and they’re the only ones with Skinny Bugga and I only have 2 skeins of Skinny Bugga . . in all of my possession . . 2 skeins!
Eat, Sleep, Knit is supposed to be getting in one last shipment of Skinny Bugga. Let’s hope I miss that notification! :)
