Woman’s Weekly reader Margaret Elliot was inspired to knit her very own nativity scene line-up after being crowned ‘fastest knitter’ at a contest at one of our popular roadshows.

‘I was overwhelmed to receive such a fantastic array of wool from Derramore Wools and decided to use my prize to make a knitted nativity scene for my local church this Christmas,’ she tells us.

‘I thought I would email the results of it to you to thank you for the wonderful event in Manchester.’

We’re really impressed by Margaret’s attention to detail – just look at the bushy beards and decadent crowns the Three Wise Men are sporting.

We love the curve-handled crooks Margaret has so thoughtfully crafted for her shepherds to hold as they protect their flocks of sheep.
