Knit your own “Knitivity”
One of the LoveKnitting team, Carly, went up to the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate a couple of weeks back. Undoubtedly the highlight of the show for her was the life-size “knitivity” scene. It was knitted by five members of the knitting group the “Knutty Knitters” to raise money for St Peter’s Hospice in Bristol, where one of their members sadly passed away.
The scene includes Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus; three wise men; the shepherds; an angel; and a knitted sheep, donkey and
camel and took five knitters almost a year to complete, using nearly 200 balls of yarn.
It will be on display around Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset in December so if you are in the area, do try and catch this spectacular sight! For more information, go to their Facebook page or JustGiving page.
If you feel inspired, then we have a copy of the book Knit the Nativity by Jan Messent to give away to one lucky reader. If you get started today you should finish in time for Christmas (next year at least!!).
