Go from sheep-raising to sweater-making, with a mother and daughter who make a game of all the stages that lie in between. From day to day, season to season, Mom is busy tending the family's small flock of sheep and then harvesting their wool to make yarn: shearing and washing, carding and spinning, dyeing and knitting. Every step of the way, her little girl is busy, too, questioning, teasing, and imitating.
Filled with color and coziness, Feeding the Sheep offers young knitters-to-be a fresh, fun look at husbandry and handicraft.
