Neekah's great grandma, Mumma, knit all her life. Her Grandma Dorothy knits, her mom knits and all her aunties knit. Even some of Neekah's uncles knit, too. Every year she asks her mom if she can learn, and every year she hears, "Be patient. Your hands aren't quite big enough yet."
At last Neekah is ready to learn, her head and heart bursting with the colorful designs she will create with the wool. She sits down with her mom, holding the wooden needles Grandpa Carl has made for her and the wool she chose from Auntie Joni's shop. But knitting a toque for Grandma Dorothy is not as easy as she had imagined.
