The Complete Nativity

Two and a half years ago I began planning to design a knitted nativity.  This Fall I began to knit.  After many hours of knitting, pulling out my work and re-knitting, I finally had the design I wanted.  The family is finished, and in the future I'm going to design add-on sets with shepherds wise men, and an angel.  Today I gave my first knitted nativity set to my mom for Christmas.  I've also begun to sell them to some friends.  If any of you are interested, you can email me to order one, and I'll add you to my waiting list.  Now, here are some pictures.

The whole family

Jesus in the manger 
(One of my favorite nativities when I was little allowed Jesus to be in Mary's arms or in the manger.  I always loved that, so I decided to do that with my own design.)

If you'd like to order a set of the family (Mary, Joseph, Jesus and the manger) email me at emma (at) littleknittedkittens.com to let me know.  Each set costs $50.  I use high quality materials and do very high quality work.  They are well made, and safe for children (although babies who are still at the put-everything-you-see-in-your-mouth stage should not handle the baby Jesus completely unsupervised, because he is small enough to fit in a baby's mouth).  If you're interested in being added to my waiting list, email me and I'll let you know when I have a set ready for you.

Healing Miracle

This is a poem I wrote back in January, and I finally decided to post it. 

Healing Miracle
By Emma Baker

Now I know why they say we have today
It is never too late, no matter what
You may have done, or have experienced
There is a way out of every night
The dawn will come, and it will be all right
The sun will shine out and banish darkness
As light prevails once more.  The price is paid
And we are free, if we will but obey
And listen to His word, for we are His
And we can be healed though His miracle.
