The Great Christmas Knit off Paperback
Can wacky Christmas jumpers really mend a broken heart?
For fans of The Christmas Cracker by Trisha Ashley and The Christmas Surprise by Jenny Colgan.
Heartbroken after being jilted at the altar, Sybil has been saved from despair by her knitting obsession and now her home is filled to bursting with tea cosies, bobble hats, and jumpers.
But, after discovering that she may have perpetrated the cock-up of the century at work, Sybil decides to make a hasty exit and, just weeks before Christmas, runs away to the picturesque village of Tindledale.
There, Sybil discovers Hettie's House of Haberdashery, an emporium dedicated to the world of knitting and needle craft.
But Hettie, the outspoken octogenarian owner, is struggling and now the shop is due for closure. And when Hettie decides that Sybil's wonderfully wacky Christmas jumpers are just the thing to add a bit of excitement to her window display, something miraculous starts to happen...

Review by wyvernfriend
Sybil's year is not going well, her fiance left her on the altar for her twin, there's a mess in work that might have been her fault, her mind really hasn't been on the job and her mother keeps pressurising her to go back with her finance or talk to her sister, or both.She runs away to the picturesque village of Tindledale, where her friend runs a pub. There she finds a variety of characters and I felt like I had read this before, not a bad read but not original, light but didn't give me a real feeling of place
