December Themed Yarn Box – Oliver Twist
The classic Dickens novel about an orphaned boy who befriends the Artful Dodger and falls in with Fagin’s gang of pickpockets first appeared in serialised form in 1837 under the title, ‘The Parish Boy’s Progress’. To mark its initial publication and December being a classic time of year for all things Dickensian, this month’s themed yarn box will take you back in time to the streets of Victorian London as we explore the traditional tale of rags to riches populated by the colourful characters Oliver meets along the way. Adapted for screen in the Academy Award winning 1968 film, ‘Oliver!’ and also a highly successful musical, Charles Dickens’ ‘Oliver Twist’ has universal appeal. What better way to enjoy winter than to cosy up with a box of yarny goodness inspired by the story.
Love yarn? Love Dickens? Love Oliver Twist? Then the December Themed Yarn Box is a must for you! The box will contain 100g of Baa Baa Brew DK British Bluefaced Leicester yarn in a limited edition colourway inspired by Oliver Twist, along with a contrasting 25g mini skein of Baa Baa Brew. Boxes will also contain a number of Dickensian related extras. Boxes will be available to purchase until Friday December 22nd, 2017 and will be posted out at the end of the month.
