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... I have already visited Kate Dando and her group of Knitters Anonymous but they already have lots of other knitting jobs in hand...they can help but we need others to join us....get in touch... pam.peptalk@outlook.com or see me at church...
