'Twas the Knits Before Christmas

'Twas the Knits Before Christmas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Knitting enthusiasts will get into the Christmas spirit right away when they open this evocatively illustrated book. It combines a charming selection of holiday-themed knitting projects with an illustrated presentation of Clement Clarke Moore's classic poem, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. Beautiful full-page and full-color Christmas illustrations capture the holiday spirit, and many of the book's pictures feature knitted items based on characters and objects cited in the beloved Christmas poem. Among them are a knitted Saint Nicholas, his reindeer, a Christmas wreath, Christmas dolls, and a large Christmas stocking. Best yet, knitters can reproduce each one of these items for themselves. Author Fiona Goble presents detailed directions for knitting each Christmas item--ten projects in total. Knitters who complete all of these projects will have a wonderful set of holiday decorations for their home or their Christmas tree. The book's opening chapter was prepared especially for inexperienced knitters. It reviews basic knitting techniques as an introduction to the book's projects.

Synopsis:

(back cover)

"'Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house . . .

. . . Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." Clement Clarke Moore's evocative 1823 poem 'Twas the Night Before Christmas helped to define the story of St. Nicholas, from children tucked up in bed, waiting for the big day, to the sleigh being pulled across the sky by eight reindeer.

'Twas the Knits Before Christmas features the poem, accompanied by beautiful color illustrations. Interspersed are patterns for creating a knitted scene that includes mom and dad, the children, Santa, eight reindeer, the moon, stockings, and toys.

Your children can play with the knitted dolls as you read the poem aloud, and you can use the miniature knits and a pattern for a full-size wreath as part of your Christmas decorations.

Fiona Goble has published half a dozen books on knitting, embroidery, and making soft toys, and has contributed to a number of craft magazines.
