 Bugsnugger is home to beautifully dyed yarns with a gentle and appealing spirit, as well as original designs by owner/ artisan Diane. I love Diane's dry sense of humour and that she is a working mom (something to do with water and earth and other cool stuff beyond my ken!) who pursues her passion for yarn and knitting, too.

Diane is a knitter's dyer, someone who really understands the interplay of pattern and colour in the finished items created with her yarns.  It is Diane's gorgeous work that my dogs made merry with a couple of weeks ago~ dyed in my favourite among many. 'Soar'.
With the holiday season upon us, I asked Diane about her favourite holiday tradition:My favorite holiday tradition it decorating the tree with the kids.  They are getting old enough they are excited to pick out the perfect one and they remember the ornaments from year to year now.  They love to bring out the ones they have made in years past and add them to the tree.  I love the lights and the tree!

What excites you about your business right now and looking ahead to 2011?:
What's exciting to me in my business right now is branching out to new people.  I have some yarn in a local shop now.  And after selling on hyenacart for over 4 years I am moving over to include Etsy.  I have also been doing some fiber shows which I love.  I have one in January local to me whcih I am very excited about and I just found out this morning I will definately be at Sock Summit 2011 sharing a booth with my good friend Scarlet (Huckleberry Knits).

What is inspiring your work right now?:

My inspiration lately has been coming from my own knitting and the project I envision for myself and my family.  I have been dyeing more from what I want to see in my own finished knitted items, although I continue to be inspired by color combinations I encounter on a daily basis.

The soft pink of Pip silk/merino and Posh II would make a beautiful shawl. Purple is my favorite color.

Asking for a favorite color is like asking which kind of chocolate is best. They ALL are! LOL But, if I had to pick one right this moment, I'd say "Allison" is my favorite.

Hi there - I'm here from Ravelry and love the colors of Bugsnugger. It was hard to choose, but the merino roving dyed in "Naked Branch" really caught my eye.

The yarn color I liked the best in the Flickr gallery was Kindness.

Thank you

I am just a beginner and everytime I visit your sites you really inspire me and get my creativee juices flowing. I'm just so in love with amazing rainbows of colors.

Fortunately I have new internet friend who is a master with yarn and she promises to "teach me the ropes" along with "Spiritual Guidance". Armed with ALL that PLUS your stunning yarns - how can I miss.

I love so many of the colors, like Posies and Doodle Bug (great names too!) but since it's also my birthstone, I'll go with your exquisite AQUAMARINE....

I basically had to close my eyes and let my mouse choose because they're all GORGEOUS! I landed on Naked Branch, and it's definitely one I would've picked with my eyes open! :-)

Thanks for the chance to win!
