YPF..............................Blue Morpho

This week's yarn pron is a skein I won the right to buy in a lottery. That's right, it is so popular that I entered a draw and was a lucky winner and got a prize - to buy this and one other skein. The yarn is Bugga by The Sanguine Gryphon and contains 20% Cashmere instead of the usual 10%. I knit some Embossed Leaves Socks out of my first skein of Bugga.
This skein is called Blue Morpho

Each colour is named after an insect

Fabulous depths and variations in this colourway

I an thinking of one of CookieA's patterns for this skein.....................

I see reflections of the rich colors of beetles (some of them are so vibrant and jewel like). Pretty yarn, You will have to share with us what it was like to knit with (as it sounds unlikely that I could ever get even near to one).

If I survive my yarn fast, I'm definitely trying some Bugga (I think she'll be at Sock Summit too!).

That color is just gorgeous!!
