Yarn Along

I am yarning along again with Ginny this week. On the needles, knitting up the last heart for another pair of Hearted Fingerless Gloves for an order in my shop. I'm still staying so very busy and have had to remove all of the made-to-order items from my shop til the holiday rush is over.
I've had no time for any personal reading but, as always, my little book worms are clamoring for me to read book after book to them. Our (my) new favorite is this wonderful book by Phyllis Root, Grandmother Winter. It tells the story of Grandmother Winter, living all alone with her flock of snow white geese. In the spring and summer she cares for the geese and collects their feathers when they flap a "storm of feathers" and stuffs them into a beautiful quilt. But when she shakes her quilt, that's when the real magic happens.


The story is just magical and Beth Krommes illustrations are so enchanting. I think it's the perfect story to read before tucking your children into their beds on a cold, wintry night.
