The Twelve Days of Christmas -expressed in the medium of knitting

creation knits 01

I know I’ve mentioned Creation Knits in Barnes before, but it keeps on getting better with its window displays, I really HAVE to show you what its done for this Christmas because I think it’s the best thing since the Knitted Olympics.

Done in beautiful detail, this season we have The Twelve Days of Christmas done in knitted form, complete with knitted leaping lords, beautifully dancing maids (don’t you love their hair?) and a very fat partridge in a pear tree. It made me smile so much, I had to share it with you.
