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.

  291. Julie Mitchell says:

    The life size on is amazing! Think I’ll be sticking to the wee one though 🙂

    I love the donkey in the life size one .. but it must be a lot of work hauling it all round Bristol, Gloucestershire and Somerset ( what no Avon? ) ;->

    Good luck with the fundraising!

    I’m wondering what size needles and weight yarn are used in the little version.
