These cozy toe-up socks are inspired by nudibranchs and yummy, squishy, Bugga! Many knitters are addicted to this hand-dyed, sport-weight yarn with lots of warm, snuggly cashmere.

A while ago, The Sanguine Gryphon offered their Nudibranch Club, which I consider to be The Best Yarn Club of All Time. They dyed Bugga! in six colorways inspired by nudibranchs (soft-bodied gastropod mollusks sometimes called sea slugs) - gorgeous creatures with ornate ornamentations and vibrant coloration.

Knit at a dense gauge with sport-weight yarn, these socks are sure to keep you warm through the coldest months. The undulating diamond lace pattern and its zig-zagging purl columns echo the ruffled mantle and cerata of a nudibranch. The eye of the partridge pattern on the Fleegle heel results in a strong fabric with a great fit.

Additional foot sizes can be accommodated easily by adding or removing stitches from the purl columns. Foot and leg length are completely adjustable to size.

Wear your Nudibranchs with neon tights for a trendy look that shows off the lace pattern and gives you extra winter warmth!
