YPF.......................................Chatsworth.

This week's stunning skein is again from Skein Queen. It is the second installment of the Squee Club Autumn yarn.




The club is based on english Stately Homes. Chatsworth is a very stately home in Derbyshire and I have only ever seen it on the screen. The last time was in the Keira Knightly version of Pride and Prejudice. To see why these colours, look at these pictures of Chatsworth House and this showing more of the house. It is now in a cake and I am searching for a 'noble' pattern for it :)

OH MY! The pictures of Chatsworth are so beautiful. It brings back super memories of when I took my children to see it. We have family history of Chatsworth. My grandfather was a gardener there and my grandmother was a parlor maid. It is where they met and fell in love. My grandmother lived in Bakewell at the time. They both enjoyed working for the Duke and Dutchess.

The yarn is quite wonderful.

You made your point well, the colors in this yarn do hint at the Chatsworth that you shared with the links - how clever! Your blog is so intriguing - showing us such incredible yarn and then following up with the perfect sock for these yarns. It creates anticipation with your readers. Well Done!
