Childhood Knitting Tales

 Freddie's BlanketFreddie’s Blanket by Joanna Johnson with illustrations by Eric Johnson.

I miss childhood sometimes when I see treasures like Freddie’s Blanket by Joanna Johnson.  Joanna weaves a wonderful tale about an adorable Platypus, named Freddie, and manages to incorporate knitted items throughout the book, with patterns included, of course.  The illustrations really grab my “art heart” and are created by Joanna’s husband, Eric.  Joanna and Eric, inspired by their own children, share with us an opportunity to create our own traditions of sharing our love of knitting with our little ones. 

You might also enjoy another book by this duo…

It’s our turn to pass on happy childhood memories wherever we roam.  Tag, your it!
