When we moved into the house, Micah’s Mom sent me an email about a box we received the month before. I didn’t open the box because I thought it was a Christmas present but it turns out that it wasn’t a Christmas present. It was Christmas decorations. Get ready to see something that will I know will knock you right out of your knitted socks.
What is it? It’s a completely knitted nativity scene. Yes, completely knitted down to the baby Jesus and the 3 friendly sheep. Here are some close-ups.
How about the Holy Family? I love the Mary figure.
Last but not least, the shepherds and their flock.
Amazing right? Micah’s Mom made THREE nativity scenes. Yes, three!! One to keep, one for us and one for Micah’s brother’s family. Speaking of his brother, Micah’s sister-in-law, Sarah, is a knitting whiz. She’s so fast and so creative. I saw her whip up a baby hat in a matter of hours and it was perfect. Everyone in Micah’s family has a super cool hand knit Christmas stocking made by Sarah. I drooled over these stockings the first few Christmases we spent together. I wanted one and thought about knitting one but I don’t have the skills for that.
This one’s Micah’s. The fabric lining matches the background fabric on the button.
We spent our 3rd Christmas together in New Mexico and when we arrived, I saw this:
I knew I was “in” when I saw that stocking. In years past, Micah’s parents kept our stockings and would bring it with them where ever Christmas was held. This year that gave us our stocking to keep in our new home. I’m already excited for Christmas!
Momager may not be a knitter, but she can crochet with the best of them. A few months back I showed Momager this picture from Apartment Therapy. I wanted it but knew it was out of my price range. I thought about making it but it’s way beyond my skill level. Pretty Right?
This weekend Momager called and asked me if I’d like a similar bedspread in White or Grey. She had a lot of yarn in those colors and was looking for a project. I’d take this bedspread in any color but white and grey just happen to be our bedroom colors.
She may even throw in a few of these just because. I may just have to have her teach me to crochet like this. I promise I won’t go doily crazy. I promise to only make cute pillows like these for good and not for evil.
