My Nativity Set!

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 13, 2014, 2:36 AM
I'm not a Christian myself, I do not believe in God and whatnot, but this means a lot to me as a person. It's more about tradition than faith, so I'd appreciate it if you all would respect that, no matter if you're religious or not yourself. I've yet to get nasty comments about this, and I would like to keep it that way. Just a heads up and a friendly reminder :3

October last year, I posted a journal about knitted Nativity sets. I were looking for a good pattern that I could make that weren't too cartoony but yet had a pretty design to it. I did end up buying one pattern and I did give it a test knit (even though I screwed it up by giving the angel WAY too long neck), but I couldn't find time to even start on the set before Christmas.

Now it's November the year after, and I've still haven't found time to start knitting the figurines, and the yarn I originally bought for these characters ended up being used for other projects here and there. But! One thing I didn't tell you guys in the meantime, was that my mom bought the modern looking set in wood for herself since she liked it so much, and then decided to give me her old set. This made me crazily happy! But I couldn't find room, or dared to even try cramming it down my suitcase to bring it back to my appartment after Christmas. Then we kinda forgot about the whole thing, until I mentioned it for my mother this summer. She was all "OH! I thought you brought it with you?".

Now, I live a good three hour train ride away from my parents, not that it's a long travel distance or anything, but I did not want to bring something that fragile with me on public transport where there's limited room and a lot of uncontrolled movement. Then she forgot about it a couple of times, and I forgot to remind her about it, so I thought that it would be impossible to get the set over here in time for Christmas. But she surprised me with it today when they came over for a quick visit when being in the area already.

It's so beautiful! Matte, handpainted porcelain with gold flakes and rhinestones.

It might not have all the pieces, all the animals that belongs in a Nativity Set... But this particular set belongs to my childhood, and for me, these are the only ones I want and need. I've got a feeling that there's one extra piece to this though, since there's an empty place in the box. I can't remember if one piece broke, or if my mother just didn't buy that one.

To keep this journal entry knitting related, I haven't forgotten about the knitted set. I've still got the pattern and at some point, I will get around to make that one too. I've been talking about making it a advent knit, working up a couple of pieces each year until I've made them all, but again, time for personal knitting around Christmas is just about impossible. Maybe I'll get around to it in the middle of summer next year when knitting bigger pieces is a hassle and a half.
