Birthday yarn

It was my birthday this week and I had a lovely day. Here are pics of the yarn I received as presents:

A skein of Peak District yarns high twist in colourway ‘At the end of the day’ which does rather resemble the colours of the hills round there. I chose this myself when shopping in Marple with my Mum in the summer.


And a skein of Truly Hooked sock yarn in colourway ‘Supersonic’. Wonder what this will look like once knitted up?

I also got a large pile of chocolate and a coldframe!

We had a day out to Painshill, an 18th century landscape garden, on my birthday itself – a lovely sunny day with plenty of autumn colours to admire

And my fabulous birthday cake:


  1. […] soft play or the playground. I decided I wanted to make something that used these two skeins, one a birthday present last year, the other from Christmas – I liked the way the colours echo each […]


  2. Sounds wonderful. That white speckled sock yarn will be fun. I knit socks with something similar that looked like confetti on a white background. Or sprinkles on a birthday cake. ☺️ Quite fitting!
