Picture Books featuring Knitting, Spinning, Weaving, Yarn

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer "LaurenLanita" (USA)
The list author says: "I love crafts, picture books and teaching crafts to children. I have noticed that there are quite a few good books out there that talk about crafting, mostly knitting, and also about the process of taking wool from the sheep to yarn. I hope this list will help others searching for a way to introduce kids to knitting, spinning or weaving (also to crochet which I also do but there just aren't that many books about it).
I'm sure there are more books out there. Especially spinning and crocheting stories...or at least I hope there are. If you know of any let me know."
