extra yarn

Have you heard the buzz about this book, EXTRA YARN? Seen the darling pages?
I think it is one of the most charming little books I have ever read. Probably because of my love of knitting.
A girl named Annabelle. Who has a tiny box full of never ending yarn for her.
And a heart full of the love for knitting and the art of giving.
Sweet and creative with darling illustrations.

I have one copy for one of my readers. If interested, please leave a comment here before Wednesday, March 14, 5pm EST and I will have the random number generator choose a number.
