Tomato Frog BFF socks from Bugga sock yarn!

BFF socks from Bugga Tomato Frog

 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.

    Beautiful color to that yarn! I’ll have to look into it…because, of course, I need another yarn supplier like I need…you know.

    BTW–love your cables. Mine suck–can’t get rid of the gaps where I switch for knit to purl. Yours are beautiful.

    MCN blends are THE BEST. Squoosh and Plucky are pretty easy to get and use wonderful MCN bases as well. Mamablue is also, but I think she’s even harder to get then Bugga.

    Wonderful! What weight is the yarn? I tried checking Sanguine Gryphon’s site, but there isn’t any Bugga left, so I can’t tell!
