    I adore this! Crafting and creating something so special on request from a young book lover. I’ve looked at this post many times and finally purchased the book, The Golden Glow for my 6yo. It’s a huge hit in our house now too, and so I’m off to try and design our own version of a sweater to recreate the feel of the book. Thankyou for the inspiration x

    I think it’s a lovely sweater! Not having read the book this post had me putting a hold on it at my local library – I think you captured the book very well! I love the rainbow flecks on the body of the sweater and the rainbow cuffs. Great job!

    Beautiful sweater as Mom honoured the wishes of her child and created magic. I have learned that there is great satisfaction in knitting garments for others when the recipients are consulted. Turns out my likes often were not theirs. Well done Mom

    I love it! What a treasure! We have such a finite amount of time to create things for those we love. ❤️ What a wonderful memory for you both.

    Thanks for the inspirational post. I’ve got the strange brew recipe and just need the courage to tackle it. Ordering the book is already done. I have a couple of recipients in mind who would love it.

    Thanks so very very much for sharing this! I had to immediately go buy the book (which is as lovely as you said!) I can hardly wait to share this with my grandchildren.
