Borka

Borka-blog “Of course she could not knit real feathers, but she made a kind of grey woollen jersey as much like feathers as she could.”

Just to continue the theme of animals knitting, here is an illustration by John Burningham from Borka: the Adventures of a Goose with no Feathers.

This was Burningham’s first children’s book (published by Jonathan Cape 1963) and this picture shows Borka’s mother, Mrs Plumpster, getting out her knitting needles and setting to work to knit Borka something to keep her warm.

I have blogged about John Burningham before here.
