Patriotic Sock Yarn and Red, White and Blue Party Items

My friend Joanne sent me red, white and blue birthday party napkins, cupcake papers, glow bracelets, tiny fairie lights, and some fun hand-dyed sock yarn– labeled You’re a Grand Old Flag. Self striping.   You know how I’ve been into sock knitting this year. 

My being born (is that proper English?)on the Fourth of July inspires her selections. You might remember the cupcake tree she sent one year?  That post has the 1-2-3-4 Cake Recipe .

How about those Red white and blue chocolate covered Sunflower seeds? Where do you find this stuff? 

I’m back in Ohio and the kids are coming over to celebrate Monday. We will put the items to good use.

Thanks J. It’s going to be a happy birthday party. Can’t wait to knit the socks. And wear them!

  1. What a festive assortment. Love those fairy lights — Birthday wishes – enjoy the fireworks with the kids.

  2. You are so lucky to have such a fun birthday. Colorful, explosive and it celebrates our country. Happy Birthday!

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!! After hearing the annual reading of the Declaration of Independence on NPR this AM, you have reminded me of Cohen’s “It’s a Grand Old Flag!” Sang that enough when I was a kid to remember all the lyrics now!!!!! THANKS for this blog and Let the Fireworks begin! 🙂

  4. “Self striping” sock yarn – I’ve never heard of such a thing! That’s awesome.

    I would love to get some “self striping” blanket yarn – how much easier that would make crocheting gifts. 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
