Bunky Bobo's

Bunky Bobo’s hand dyed yumminess arrived a few days ago- what a treat! Sandy of Bunky Bobo’s does it all, knitting, dyeing and she even makes lip balm! Inside her box of samples, was a special package for me- my very own skein of sock yarn and lip balm to test!! I must admit to you, I wasn't as excited about the lip balm as I was the yarn, but then I tried it… YUM! It has a really soft, smooth and creamy texture and her “frosting” flavor is spot on! It immediately found its way into my purse. A few of you lucky peeps will be getting Bunky Girl Lip Balm because Sandy was so generous and threw a few in for January’s Box! Okay, I had way too much fun photographing Bunky Bobo’s Yarn. Her colors are just awesome, the yarn is of great quality, and her names are inspired by literature. While I was photographing them, I found myself planning sock projects for each color. My Dad, I’ve decided, needs some socks made from her “Lear” colorway. My sister Jill needs some monkey socks from “Hera” and I want something from Henry the 5th! Macbeth looks like it needs to be a hat or wrist-warmers for my younger sis Susan. If you want froo froo pastels, don’t shop at Bunky Bobo’s. Nope. Only deep, rich, soulful colorways can be found in her shop. Speaking of soulful, I rarely miss reading Sandy’s blog- where she continually stands up for those of us who are dependant on nice yarn. A warm fuzzy to Bunky Bobos!
