DESCRIPTION

Annabelle lives in a cold, colorless town of white snow and black soot. One day, she finds a small box of colorful yarn, and she decides to knit a sweater. Suddenly, there is color in her life. When she's finished, she finds she has extra yarn and decides to knit one for her dog, and her dog too is now cozy and colorful!

It had looked like an ordinary box of ordinary yarn.
But Annabelle discovers, it isn’t.

With a supply of yarn that never runs out, Annabelle knits for everyone and everything in town, spreading kindness and friendship until an evil archduke decides he wants the yarn for himself. Will Annabelle be able to keep the yarn from the archduke?
