The knitted nativity is done!
This has been a difficult project.
I chose an Alan Dart pattern - bought online. But when I perused it further, after purchase, I realised that it wasn't really child friendly. I want children in the church creche to be able to play with it. So I have had to change nearly all of the trimmings with only the basic body pattern being suitable.
In the end I gave in and stopped knitting and used felt - otherwise it would never have been finished!!
I will put it anonymously in the creche tomorrow - hope they like it.
Utterly relieved that it is done!
