Neekah's Knitting Needles is a delightful story about learning to knit in the Cowichan style based on the knitting of Cowichan people from near Port Alberni. In Neekah’s Knitting Needles, the knittling style is based on the work of Odelia Smith from Tsartlip First Nation near Victoria, B.C. Coast Salish knitting is also part of a National Film Board documentary, The Story of the Coast Salish Knitters. Sheena Lot is a picture book illustrator and has won numerous awards for her work. In Neekah’s Knitting Needles Neekah is finally old enough to learn to knit. Excited at this prospect she visits her grandfather who has made a special gift for her. She then visits the wool shop and is given the opportunity to learn about wool and choose one for its weight and colour. Her next step is to learn to knit, think about what to knit and choose a design. The story doesn’t end here but tells the story of gift giving. This is a highly recommended book not only for young knitters but also to learn about the respect, patience and caring.
