Finally…

and the first one to come is the cow. traditionally it is of course an ox. but we have had this cow for about 13 years now. she was knitted from hand-spun yarn by one of the grandmothers at our school who lives in kenya. one year she came to perth to visit her family here  for christmas and had a whole bag full of knitted animals.  i was lucky to get the cow who has a cute little knitted udder. and she has graced our nativity scene every year since then.
