Eleven year-old sternman Josy wants red and gray sawtooth mittens like his lobster boat skipper, but the village knitter, Aunt Ester, makes him old-fashioned compass mittens. When their boat gets lost in a thick fog, however, the old-time mittens hold the key to getting home safe-there might be some magic knitted into them.

Filled with a wide array of classic knitting patterns, this book is, in essence, the ultimate mitten book. The patterns are organized from simple to difficult and their origins range from traditional Scandinavian and Canadian Maritime patterns to more contemporary sewn and windblock patterns from right here in Maine. Rounding out the patterns is useful information on caring for and repairing woolens; tips for adding details such as buttons, straps, or leather palms to mittens; and a list of yarn suppliers.

The Ice People 5 – Friendship, now in new translation. The Legend of the Ice People series has already captivated 39 million readers across Europe. This is Europe in 1625. The Thirty Years’ War is raging and many of the young men among the Ice People are also involved in it. Tengel’s granddaughter, Cecilie Meiden, is still employed as a nanny and governess at the Court of Denmark’s King Christian IV. His children, especially his favourite daughters, Anna Katrine and Leonora Christina, keep Cecilie on her toes while the King goes to war. But Cecilie has got herself into trouble. She is pregnant with a married man, who happens to be a vicar. Her good friend, Alexander Paladin, is also in very great trouble. Rumours have it that he has committed an unforgiveable sin, which usually leads to the death penalty. The series about the Ice People is a moving legend of love and supernatural powers, and not least the struggle between good and evil.
