Here is this week’s Free Story!
(as featured on the Sparkle iTunes Podcast)
And it’s all about Knitting!
The story is called “The Fingerknit Necklace“.
In this sweet story, Martin and Sylvia want to make a gift for their friend the children’s librarian. They decide on a knitting project, and it’s not long before both Martin and Sylvia are hard at work on a clever fingerknit necklace. They end up with two spectacular projects, and one problem: who will get the second gift?
This free story goes with
our brand-new Audio Book!
Martin & Sylvia’s
“Knitting from the Beginning” Audio Book
This is an hour-long “Martin & Sylvia” story divided into three parts! The story includes lots of wool craft projects, including knitting, working with wool, spinning yarn and finger knitting – and centers on a class brother and sister take with a magical woman named Miss Melinda.

Would you like to knit along with Martin and Sylvia?
We’ve teamed up with Shannon Herrick of the Spun Monkey, and she’s created three project tutorials and 1 adorable original knitting pattern!
The first tutorial teaches you how to make the very same fingerknit necklace that Martin and Sylvia make in the free story!
You’ll find the “Fingerknit Necklace” tutorial HERE!
The next tutorials will include projects from the Knitting from the Beginning Audio Book: how to sew a flower out of fingerknitting, as well a simple pattern for knitting Sylvia’s “Fairy Poke”.
And finally, she’s offering a very special knitting pattern for Martin’s Acorn Cap! You can knit either the top or the bottom of the acorn! This pattern will be for sale in her Etsy shop and on Ravelry.
Stay tuned for those links!
