First in the Nativity Series!

Here is the first in my Nativity Series of patterns, Three Kings! These little guys come bearing tiny knitted gifts!!

I have added the pattern to my Ravelry & Etsy stores – this addition means that I have surpassed my 2017 goal of having 2 dozen patterns available in my shops :), so that’s a total of 6 of 10 goals complete! #3 – Intarsia, #6 – Brioche, #7 – Knit myself a really nice sweater, and #10 – Double side knitting, are all that remain.

I probably won’t get to the sweater this year as I have an added goal of designing the sweater pattern too, so there’s still lots of work to be done.

As mentioned in the L is for Love Nest post, I am going to be focusing on three series of patterns:

  1. Twelve Days of Christmas – a series of 12 patterns representing the 12 items from the 12 Days of Christmas song. (Partridge in a Pear Tree is complete!)
  2. Musical Mice – a series of 12 patterns with Muris Mouse depicting 12 of my favourite Christmas Carols. (Warm Woolen Mittens is complete!) I have made a slight alternation to this series. I will be doing a variety of animals rather than just mice.
  3. Nativity Scene – a series of patterns for a complete Nativity Scene. (Three Kings is complete!)

Stay tuned for the next three patterns in the series:

Warm Woolen Mittens!

Mice

This is the first in my Christmas Carol Critters series of patterns – Warm Woolen Mittens!!

Each pattern in this series will be based on one of my favourite Christmas Carols or stories.  Although not officially a Christmas Carol, “My Favourite Things” from “Sound of Music” has become very popular as a holiday song in recent years. I am a long-time fan of both the movie and the song, so I just had to include it in this series!

These little mice in their warm woolen mittens would make lovely child-friendly Christmas ornaments or even mini stockings!  Just imagine waking up to this little friend hanging by your bed or on your tree with his mitten full of tiny treats!
