There’s no such thing as too much yarn

Did I mention it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago? Honestly, April has whizzed past so quickly it feels like it was only yesterday.

Another present I got from my parents was a big box of yarn!

30 skeins to be exact; one for every year. There’s all sorts in there so I thought I’d have a proper look and share what I got.

There are some classics like a Caron Cake (have these shrunk??) Sugar n Cream, and some Women’s Institute in various colours.


Some gorgeously squishy stuff

Fun colourways

And my absolute favourite, the unicorn pack

It’s sparkly! I’m already digging around Ravelry trying to find the perfect project for it. Sparkly unicorn jumper anyone?

I really, definitely, absolutely must sort out my yarn stash now. Throwing it in all higgledy piggledy is just not working when I have so much. So that’ll be my exciting weekend!

Any suggestions for a pattern to use my unicorn yarn pack on? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Oooh, very nice! And happy belated birthday! As for your unicorn yarn (yarnicorn? 😁), if you knit as well as crochet , you might take a look at the Peppermint Twist sweater in the original Stitch’n’Bitch handbook by Debbie Stoller. It’s what I thought of when I saw those sparkly pastels! Enjoy your new stash 😀

  2. belated happy birthday wishes to you! And what a brilliant idea your parents had: a ball of yarn for each birthday candle! Maybe I should suggest that to my kids for my next birthday?

  3. How lucky! All this yarn looks gorgeous, have you decided what to do with the unicorn yarn yet? I think it’s going to look amazing whatever you decide to do!
