Would you like to see my knitted nativity set? I managed to get it finished just in time for Christmas last year. The husband made the setting for me. A stable in a cave. It even has a thatched roof, straw and tiny lights.
Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus.
The shepherds with some of their sheep.
The wise men with their knitted gifts. They're looking a bit tired after their long journey.
Lots of people have made this nativity set or at least parts of it. I used Jean Greenhowe's pattern for all the figures. Most of them are made using odds and ends of yarn, including some Rowan pure wool. I'd love to make a donkey to add to the collection but it won't be this year.
Hope you are enjoying the last few days before Christmas. Of course, not everyone celebrates Christmas but I'm sure those who don't won't mind those who do just enjoying it. Must go and have a (bought!) mince pie.
