The Moomins

When I was 7 years old, way back in 1968, I remember my teacher, Miss Heathfield, reading the book Comet in Moominland by Tove Jansson.

This book has stuck in my mind ever since because it was the first one that really engaged my imagination.  As the teacher read the book, I felt that I was part of the story.  It was such a gripping adventure.

Since then, the number of books I have read that have inspired the same feeling are too many to count, but Comet in Moominland was the first and will always be the most significant.

So, not only have I bought a copy of the book, to re-read but I have also made myself a Moomintroll.

The crochet pattern is by Samantha Evans and is available for free.  You can see details of the pattern over on Ravelry, here.

So now I'm going to snuggle up with my Moomintroll, my lovely book and I'm going to relive the adventure.
