I think I’ve found my Wollmeise.
By that, I mean I think I’ve found the yarn that makes me mindlessly want to buy every single color, to sell my soul for another skein, to blather mindlessly about its awesomeness to anyone who will–or won’t–listen. It’s Bugga sock yarn, from the Sanguine Gryphon. A merino, cashmere nylon blend, Bugga comes in colorways inspired by bugs and well, this one is called Tomato Frog.
It’s squishy and soft. The colors are amazing. I adore it. Look at the way the cables pop.
I think I will be knitting even more socks than usual, and I’ll update soon to say why!
I’ve been using the same bag for..oh, I think the past two years. It’s really boring and cost $10 at Wal-Mart. The lining is ripped, it’s dowdy and ugly. So I finally decided I wanted a new knitting bag. I ran across a woman on ravelry who makes the cutest little knitting bags you’ve ever seen.
Her shop is emoknitter.etsy.com. I liked them so much that I created a Ravelry fan group, which you can check out for shop updates and–psss—there’s a special today for group members, so you may want to join! I don’t get kickbacks for writing this, either. She’s great for customwork as well, including these cute patchwork bags.
But, on to the actual bag porn. These are small little bags perfect for socks, and they’re all adorable. I can’t wait to carry my socks-in-progress in something that’s actually cute.
The Spyrograph bag–I love this one the most because I played with spyrographs as a kid
