Once upon a time there was a girl who loved yarn but didn’t have enough at home (who has?). As her fairy godmother couldn’t see her so sad, she gave the girl a magical shawl and told her to set out and search for the Enchanted Forest. She walked for three days and three nights until she reached the most beautiful tree she had ever seen. While the trees she had known before gave her only fruit, this one was full of the most precious gift she could imagine: gorgeous skeins of yarn as far as she could see. She filled her basket with her favorite colors, walked home and knitted happily ever after.
