I had big plans to make this Nativity set for mom for Christmas, and make one for our family as well. I had learned my lesson from the sock monkey, and purchased online the recommended yarn for the project. It was wool and a very light weight, and I had a really hard time working with it. Even though the figures are really little, it took me longer than expected (and longer than I thought it should -- love you, Mom!) to complete the project. So one set got done for mom, and maybe next summer I will work on one for us.
I got the creche from Deseret Book. The patterns for the crochet figures are from Whistle & Ivy.
