You may remember dear Reader, I agreed to knit a knitivity. Well today saw the Nativity Service and did I manage to finish it?
Well bar two Shepherds, the Ox, the Donkey, a few sheep and the Wise Men’s gifts. Not that it matters really. I’ve said that I will finish but not for a few days. It’s at church at the moment and will stay there over the Christmas period. Only because I’ve got to the stage where I am sick of it and I really need to knit a little hat for my niece.
The Church was filled with lots of other Nativity sets including another knitted one.
There was even a take using beads.
My favourite was this one made from Slate.
The theme of the service was Nativity but the meaning of nativity (spelt with a small n) means new beginnings and new birth. This was linked to themes of New Year and new starts. I found it very poignant, especially since I’m wanting to make a few positive changes in the new year – and yes I’ve already made my resolutions – you’ll have to wait till 1st January to see what they are 🙂
