We take a look at a wonderful little book by Lisa Smyth of Limavady yarn shop Row by Roe. The book is aimed at young knitters and involves an adventure and a colourful scarf pattern.
Nellie can be a bit forgetful. Everywhere she visits she seems to leave something behind, whether it’s her knitting bag, or her keys, it’s always something. But in this adventure Nellie is in real trouble, she has a special customer order to knit – a scarf – and she can’t find all the woolly bits and bobs she needs to make it. She must have left them somewhere on her travels. But the scarf needs to be finished by Monday!
In this wonderfully illustrated little book, we follow Nellie as she tries to retrace her steps around the Roe Valley to find her knitty essentials and get that scarf finished.
As well as a lovely little story and trip through the various touristy places to visit in the Roe Valley, Lisa also gives us a beginners scarf pattern complete with detailed ‘how to knit’ instructions. This is a great idea for getting youngsters into knitting, as they knit-a-long with Nellie. The FO is a super colourful scarf complete with pompoms – what more could you want!
