#762 Finger Knitted Nativity
Acquired 2016This sweet, small, soft three-piece set has been hand knitted by someone very talented. The pieces, only about three inches high, are well designed in the small amount of space in which to work. Joseph ears, eyes, mouth, and beard are well defined. Mary has hair under her white head cover. Notice how her hands are folded, while Joseph's hands are used to carry his staff. Baby Jesus is accented with white and gold yarn. Of course, his body is knitted white for purity. The pieces didn't want to stand, so I filled them with tissue paper to give them stability for display.The precious little set was a gift to me by Sue Parker, from Incline Village, NV. She is a friend I met at the Houston Nativity Conference I attended in 2015. I'm sorry I was away, and I didn't get to see her when she stopped by with this darling gift. November 2016.
