As a grandmother knits an afghan for her granddaughter, she knits strong ties with the girl, too. A very special story of bonding between the generations, based on author Harriet Zieferts own life.
Sarahs grandmother loves to knit, and from her needles emerge hats and gloves, mittens and socks, sweaters and scarves, all to keep her children and grandchildren warm. Now its Sarahs turn to get something extra-special: a big, beautiful afghan, made from wool Sarah has chosen herself. Something that large takes time, however. Summer turns to fall, school begins, Halloween comes, then Thanksgiving. Finally, Grandma announces shes coming to visit—with the afghan. Sarahs wait is almost over. But theres still one thing left to do...
Harriet Ziefert still owns the afghan, knitted by her own grandmother, that inspired this loving tale.
