Well its a miserable day up here in Yorkshire (although no thunder storms as yet) so what better way to brighten up a dull day than to talk about The Golden Skein – Harvest Summer club parcel.

This is the second round (third if you include the trial club) and the amazing yarns just keep on coming!!

The first yarn was a superwash merion/wool self striping (swoon) from desert vista dyeworksI hadn’t really heard of them before but since receiving this skein they are everywhere!

This yarn is one heel away from becoming a pair of socks! Love them!

The second yarn is from the fantabulous sparkleduck.

Its a merino/silk/yak (yes, yak yarn!) mix in a gorgeous colourway called plumbleberry compote.

At the moment it really is a Golden Skein, I have no idea what to do with it-maybe some totally over indulgent socks (yes I know these would not be hard wearing!) or a beautiful summer shawl…….any ideas greatly recieved!

The final yarn is this squoosy offering from ginger twist studios.

Its a merino silk mix, a slightly thicker 4ply at 338m per 100g (probably due to the squooshyness.

I think this will be a baby cardigan (again yes I know silk mix not the best for a baby cardi) but its just to soft and squooshy…..

Sign ups for the third quarter are open now, the picture looks fabulous so i am ( as always) totally excited. All the details can be found here
