First up - Bugga!!! Gryphon was kind enough to trade me a skein of Bugga! for a yarn bowl. I picked "Blue Lobster" - you know I am such a sucker for blues! The picture has been shamelessly swiped from Gryphon's website but I don't think she will mind too much since I am giving the the address to go over there and shop HERE. However, poor Gryphon never seems to sell anything so she never has any Bugga! on her site for you to buy.
Here's a cute story for you. On Thursday when we were setting up Gryphon and Kate (of Dragonfly Fibers) needed some help setting up their booth. We were happy to help so Wayne, Katey and I went over there and helped them to get everything all set up. Katey went over first and as a joke I gave her one of our shopping bags (that has Knit Witch and our logo printed on it) and told her to tell Gryphon to hang this up in their booth. It was a joke of course.
So, the bag stayed and people actually came to our booth looking for "my sexy man". Of course, Wayne hated this - poor thing. They left that bag up there all weekend. On Sunday I went over there and I told them that some day, when they hit it big like Knit Witch and have their very own printed bags that I would return the favor and hang one of their bags up in our booth. This was, of course, hilarious because I don't think there is a knitter anywhere who does not know about Sanguine Grypon and her scrumptious yarns and why she sells out of stuff as soon as she puts it up on the site!
