Yarn lovers and radicals

extra-yarnI’m guessing that if Annabelle were a real person, she’d be out wearing some spectacularly fabulous hats today.  She’s a community organizer, maybe without meaning to be.  She’s a connecter, knitting for one very familiar storybook bear, as well as mailboxes and birdhouses.  She understands the people in her community.  (Would everyone wear a sweater?  No.  But hats work nicely, too.)  She cares about more than the money some selfish archduke wants to lob at her.  In the end, her kindness is her power and her joy.

Rock on, Annabelle.
