Knitted Nativity Challenge

Home » News » Thinking ahead to next year

I am sure you have all seen the knitted nativity that is often displayed in Church at Christmas time... but have you seen a life size knitted nativity.. well, there is one.. lovingly crafted by a group Bristol who were raising money for a local hospice...if any of you use Facebook, look them up... 'Knitivity On Tour' .
I expect you can guess what I am going to ask next? Is anyone up for the challenge to knit our own? I have a basic pattern ...all we need willing needles and wool...Obviously this will be for next Christmas...not this year...
