I'm back!!!

I couldn't connect to the WIFI avalable in the flat that we rented for 10 days in Barcelona so I have a lot of catching up to do.  My two kids had no problem connecting with their Macs; but there was some sort of incompatibility with windows and a Dell program on my computer.  Believe me my next computer will be a Mac!!

Anyway, here is a picture I took specifically with knitting in mind.  These are little figures of sheep and lambs in a market stall in the old town of Barcelona.  Apparently people add to their nativity scenes every year and you could by small pots, bales of hay,  figurines like these and much more.  I knew that I wanted something on a knitting theme and what says knitting more than sheep.

Here's a nativity scene in a glass case on display in one of the old stone buildings.  There is, of course, the knitted nativity scene from Jean Greenhowe, which I have posted before.  Here is a nice photo of it again

Complete with sheep and donkey.  Now we just need "the camel."

Hope that you had a good Christmas - more pictures of Barcelona to come!!!
