Nativity Camel Update

Remember this little guy, who flew all the way to England to be a part of my Father in Law's Church's Nativity?

 

I think it is seriously awesome that his church has a knitted nativity. Apparently all the parts have been knitted by various church members, although occasionally some characters get nicked! I guess they are just too cute to resist.  Big thanks to my in laws for getting the photos of the little camel in action. And this year, I promise to get a donkey in there as well.

Stealing from a church nativity?! That sounds like a straight ticket to hell to me :)

Yep, that's just about the cutest thing I've ever seen. Your adorable camel fits in perfectly!

I have to wonder...who would steal from a church's nativity set?!

Sarah said...

A knitted nativity is such a good idea. If I ever feel ambitious enough I might try making one for my nieces and nephew.

Maryse said...

Wow! I wish I could knit my own nativity! Maybe I can target to have it done by... 2020 ;-))) It is really nice!

An update from G's dad-

"It's not so much that things get stolen from the nativity; we hide them all around the church at the "Crib Service" and the kids hunt for them. But I think some of the sheep have proved just too adorable....

Thanks Julie - he's MUCH admired"
