Well, the weather outside may be frightful, but knitting is so delightful!
Over the last few weeks, I have embarked on a crafting adventure to ring in the holiday season.
Building on my new-found obsession for the underwater world (via diving and Blue Planet II), I set about knitting a underwater nativity scene, or a knitivisea! So without further ado, a slightly adapted Christmas story:
While penguins watched their seals by night, all seated on the ground…
A jellyfish of the Lord appeared, and glory shone around!
After chilling with the heavenly host, the penguins hurried into Bethlehem to find the tiny baby Jesus roe with attentive clownfish Mary and Joe. Seeing a new desk lamp in the sky, three wise whales from the east followed the light to the place where the roe lay, bringing gifts of copepods, isopods and zooplankton.
And there was much frolicking and general happiness all around!
Special shout out to my long-suffering flatmates who have been putting up with stray bits of yarn wandering about the flat. ❤
In case you are looking for other nativity options, I thought I would share one of my previous masterpieces: Dinomas nativity scene from 2015. Merry Christmas everyone!!
One thought on “Knitivisea for the underwater festive season”
Beautiful! Suan: i used to cross stitch, and quite a few large pieces which I framed up. Inspired now to get started back with it again too!
