I have been meaning to share Extra Yarn with you for awhile now, but it kept slipping my mind. Extra Yarn, by Mac Barnett & Illustrated by Jon Klassen, is a beautiful, heart-warming book that was released earlier this year. It is the sweetest thing for a knitter, young or old. I thoroughly enjoy reading it, but even better are the illustrations. They’re unexpected and so simplistic but perfect and fitting for the story.
I was lucky enough to receive this as a surprise gift from my dear sister Betsy. This is a book I will hang onto and cherish forever. Extra Yarn is a tale of a little girl named Annabelle who finds a box of colorful yarn that she starts knitting & ends up changing her world.
I hope that if you treat yourself to this book, that you enjoy it as much as I do!
