About the Stories

"Part One: The Spunderful Shop"

"The Spunderful Shop" is the name of a shop brother and sister discover during the annual Art Walk. Walking into the Spunderful Shop is like walking into a fairy land of bright sparkling colors and delightful little creatures — all made of knitted and felted wool. When they find out that Miss Melinda, the proprietor of The Spunderful Shop, teaches classes, Martin and Sylvia are very excited!

"Part Two: How to Be a Sheep"

Martin, who already knows how to knit, learns that working with yarn is much more than just making things. He and Sylvia work with Miss Melinda's sheep — they shear, card, comb, and then spin the wool into yarn. And in doing so learn that spinning and knitting is most enjoyable when you are peaceful and slow — like a sheep!

"Part Three: The Fairy Poke"

Sylvia is nervous about learning to knit. She thinks that it might be too hard for her, until Miss Melinda chooses the perfect project for her — a fairy poke. These little satchels are the best way to carry something close to Sylvia's heart — fairy gifts!
