The story is about a dull colourless town that gets a touch of colour and change of attitude with the help of a box of yarn and a girl named Annabelle. From the seemingly endless box of Extra Yarn Annabelle knits clothing for everyone around her, tempering the ill-tempered, and creating beautifully patterned warmth for people, animals, and objects, alike. When a greedy clothes-loving archduke tries to buy--then steal--the box for himself, he discovers that ill-gotten gains bear no fruit--or in this case, yarn.
Kate had written me a little message inside the book - it hasn't photographed very well but I hope you can read it - it's so lovely .................
I love the idea of knitting people happy, I would love to be Annabelle.
I hope you get a chance to read the story- it has made me think that sometimes it doesn't take very much to make people happy and little things can have a big impact - some of the time.
talk soon Sue x
