SweetPea’s favorite book and I have two copies for you {Extra Yarn!}

extra yarn giveaway

My oldest sister gave her this for Christmas.

We read it. Every. Single. Day. Sometimes twice.

Bridget selected it because she knows I love yarn and she thought the messaging was good. Bridget always researches her gifts and makes great selections. And this one is a real winner. It’s literally a winner of the Caldecott Award. And the illustrations are to die for, and the tale a wonderful one.

The story is about a little girl in a dismal town who finds a box of yarn. What she knits with that yarn changes the whole town. Even the trucks and trees get sweaters. Her box keeps giving and giving more and more yarn. There’s an evil archduke (don’t worry, he doesn’t win) who hires three robbers to steal it but for him? No yarn. It’s the triumphant message that you need love in your heart to share love. And yes, she gets the box back.

    President Taft is SO FUNNY. You have to do a lot of voices, though. 🙂 We’ve gotten Count the Monkeys and Billy Twitters from the library, and both were total hits.

    I love the fox blanket.

    Loving the blankets and trying to pick one out for Mr. A. We get each kid a special blanket as they wean out of the ones we’d use if we had another baby, and he’s at that point. 😉

    Another vote for the leggings!!

    I love your beautiful knitted blankets! Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Lauren on March 23, 2015 at 11:35 pm

    Of course the lady leggings!
    I’ve been wanting to get this book for my daughter.

    I love your lady leggings. I really want the tribal print, but it looks like you are sold out of that pattern. I suppose my second choice would be the Elk leggings. I made my son a pair of the same pattern but in yellow, so it would be kind of fun to be match. Is that weird though? Matching with your son.

    I love the elk family leggings (and the birds, and all the rest too!). I can’t wait until you have them in bigger sizes so I can buy some for my girls!

  13. Cat W. on March 24, 2015 at 9:25 am

    I love the geometric baby leggings!

  14. Lyndsey F. on March 24, 2015 at 10:41 am

    I love your leggings!

  15. Alicia on March 24, 2015 at 11:07 am

    I think my favorite shop item is the Lady Leggings – I really like the navy feather print!

  16. Ashley S. on March 24, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    The baby leggings are so cute! The elk fabric is fab!

  17. Sandra on March 24, 2015 at 3:42 pm

    I love the Deer leggings also when available the fox ones are adorable!

  18. Kate on March 25, 2015 at 1:01 pm

    The lady leggings, of course! Doesn’t matter the color, they look so cute and comfy.

  19. Ruth Anne on March 25, 2015 at 8:11 pm

    My favorite item currently in your shop would have to be the large alphabet blanket!
    P.S. Love this book
