ANOTHER GREAT BOOK!
I am so thrilled to be able to chime in and announce all of these great books written by friends. This one is really unique and one of the coolest ideas I’ve heard in a while.
Great Yarns for the Close-Knit Family
by Mary Gildersleeve
this book features knitting projects that accompany great works of children’s literature:
Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi
Canadian Summer by Hilda van Stockum
The Hobbit By J.R.R. Tolkein
Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Little House in the Highlands By Melissa Wiley
The Lost Island by Eilis Dillon
Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers
Mr. Popper’s Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater
Otto of the Silver Hand by Howard Pyle
Redwall by Brian Jacques
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Wheel on the School by Meindert de Jong
While your family enjoys reading aloud these great "yarns" you and/or your children can be knitting the projects. All the projects are original designs by Mary, the knitting guru.
How cool is that? You can knit a project related to the story. It just sounds so cozy and lovely. I have to try it.
The book is due out on March 12th. You can go to Hillside’s site and pre-order so you can be sure to start knitting right away. You could be reading to your children all summer and they can be knitting away on projects to give as Christmas gifts. Then you can tell me all about it so we can post it on O Night Divine!
Go check it out, you’ll love it.
