I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

Epiphany!

Since today is Jan. 6th, Epiphany, I will show you this nativity scene my mother owns. It was made by her aunt, who lives in Scotland.

All the figures, the sheep, even the manger, are handknitted.



I love the Three Magi. Very colorful.



I do not know what pattern was used, in case anyone is interested. But my great-aunt used a lot of Jean Greenhowe patterns, so I am assuming this is one of them.

Hey Karin, those sure are beautiful! Looks like you're right about them being Jean Greenhowe patterns:
