the magic of yarn clubs

Can you remember the last time when you stayed up late to get something, which was really important for you?

I remember. It was the fourth Harry Potter book and I was too young to be at a book store at night and my mom and I bought a special overnight delivery for this book.

When I think about it it makes me giggle with excitement – and that happened again this week, but as you can guess with yarn.

One of my favourite brands, Hedgehog Fibres, opened their sinings for their yarn clubs again. Hedgehog Fibres are handmade yarns from Ireland, created from the amazingly talented Beata Jezek and her team. These yarn clubs come in different installments, so you can choose your favourite base and you’ll get a three month delivery of colours, which are never repeated.

I signed up for last rounds Skinny Singles Club and I wanted to show you my favourite skein of this whole club installment. It’s Dahlia from Skinny Singles Club March 2016.

Last round you could choose between the Skinny Singles, Sock and Twist Sock. Both, Skinny Singles and Sock included two skeins per month, Twist was one skein.

“And what was so special about this week and the new clubs?” you may ask – it was the variety of clubs you could choose from.

I’ve seen past club installments for lace club on Beata’s Instagram and was totally blown away. Perhaps some of you know that – I’m totally into lace skeins. So additional to the three clubs I’ve mentioned before this round got three other clubs. Cashmere Club, Lace and Mini Skeins. I’m not that into mini skeins, but Lace and Cashmere where totally my piece of cake.

I’ve shared the last Skinny Singles club with my boyfriend and now he’s addicted too. So we’ve worked out a plan for this round. I got the cashmere club, which means two skeins of this amazingly snuggly fine fluffy delicate cashmere per month for me! Can you guess how excited I am? 😀 And the boyfriend got the lace club with 1 skein Silk/Merino lace, 1 skein Merino lace and two skeins of Kidsilk lace in total and – because we’re a bit more than addicted we bought the Skinny Singles club together.

(Yes, the update was at 2am in the morning…
Did I need to mention that I was a happy zombie the day after?)

So there’s a lot of yarn swapping in this house to come, and so many nice fluffy yarn cuddling action – I’m beyond thrilled!

Do you like yarn clubs?
And have you already joined the Hedgehog clubs?

Have a yarnful weekend!
