Wool You Read to Me?

Feeding the Sheep, Leda Schubert
(FSG, 2010)
Sorry about the title for this post, but there's something about yarn and knitting that brings out the pun-ishment in people. This weekend, I spent way too much time attending a knitting convention when I should have been writing this post. Yet even among the worsteds and the arans offered by vendors, there were children's books. Books about sheep and wool and yarn and knitting.

Here's a sampling of just a few of the yarn-related picture book covers on the shelves:

Are you up for counting sheep?

How about cats?



Maybe a spider?

 And what exactly are these anyway? Rabbits? I think they're rabbits.

Later: Leda Schubert (author of Feeding the Sheep) adds: "For anyone interested in further adventures in wool and knitting, I'll be at the huge New York State Sheep and Wool festival in Rhinebeck, NY, the weekend of October 16. Should be phenomenal--I think it's the biggest in the country!"
