About the Book

(back cover)
"'Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house . . .
. . . Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." Clement Clarke Moore's evocative 1823 poem " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas " helped to define the story of St. Nicholas, from children tucked up in bed, waiting for the big day, to the sleigh being pulled across the sky by eight reindeer.
"'Twas the Knits Before Christmas " features the poem, accompanied by beautiful color illustrations. Interspersed are patterns for creating a knitted scene that includes mom and dad, the children, Santa, eight reindeer, the moon, stockings, and toys.
Your children can play with the knitted dolls as you read the poem aloud, and you can use the miniature knits and a pattern for a full-size wreath as part of your Christmas decorations.
" Fiona Goble " has published half a dozen books on knitting, embroidery, and making soft toys, and has contributed to a number of craft magazines.
