Ned the Knitting Pirate
Ned the Knitting Pirate | Diana Murray
2 posts | 3 read | 4 to read
The crew of the pirate ship the Rusty Heap are a fearsome bunch! They're tougher than gristle and barnacle grit. They heave and they ho and they swab and they . . . knit? Well, one of them does, at least! Unfortunately for Ned, his knitting doesn't go over well with the captain and crew. They urge him to hide his hobby and strive to be scurvier, like pirates should be. But when the briny ocean beast shows up to feast on the Rusty Heap and its crew, maybe Ned's knitting is just the ticket to save the day! From author Diana Murray and illustrator Leslie Lammle comes the delightfully salty tale of Ned the Knitting Pirate, a boy whose love for yarn and appliqu just doesn't quite let him fit in, but makes him stand out in the best way, instead. With their appealing angle on individuality, Murray's hilarious characters and Lammle's bright illustrations are sure to win over even the most reluctant landlubber.

As delightful as you would imagine!

The illustrations are great. The story is in rhyme, making it fun to read. Best of all, Ned - chastised by the pirate captain for his hobby - saves the ship with his knitting!

Do what you love, even if other people think it‘s weird 😄

Ned loves to knit. He is the only pirate who does. Even the Captain thinks its a waste of time. That is until Ned‘s knitting skills come in handy. This book is wonderfully illustrated, and told in sing-song rhyme. I like that it show males doing a traditionally female activity. Knitting is an art, not a stereotype.

8little_paws And believe it or not it started out as a men's trade. Here's a cool post about medieval knitting: http://rovingcrafters.com/2015/06/17/knitting-for-a-living-the-medieval-knitting... 3y
LibrarianRyan @8little_paws cool thanks. It seems to be a theme this month. I also finished Boys Don't Knit. Make me want to unpack my needles and finish projects. 3y
