New Year's Day was rather drizzly here, so we decided to take our friends to visit St Albans both to look round the shops and have a look in the Cathedral. In the entrance to the Cathedral, they had this ...... a Knitivity! Isn't it great? All the figures are knitted. The figures stand around 3 to 4 feet tall, so there's certainly a lot of knitting involved in them.
Further inside was another knitted Nativity group. These were smaller; approximately 7 or 8 inches tall but still cute :)
OK ..... this is embroidery and not knitting as you can see :)
It is an altar cloth within the Cathedral and I couldn't resist putting it on my blog as I just love looking at the embroidery to be found in Churches and Cathedrals. The intricacy always fills me with awe. It blows me away to think of the time a piece of embroidery such as this would have required to complete.
