I recently read a quote from C.S. Lewis where he said, “Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” I think there is lot of truths and insights in fairy tales and in Fairy Tale Knits, six familiar fairy tales are brought to life via knitted dolls that allow children the opportunity to act out these classic stories. My daughter has really enjoyed looking through the bright colorful stories with the cute knitted cast acting out the scenes. There are full instructions for the characters, plus their removable clothes and accessories, which makes them extra fun to play with. There’s twenty pieces to knit in Fairy Tale Knits and no advanced skills are needed, as long as you know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off, increase and decrease then you shouldn’t have any problems making them.
