Happy first Advent!
Advent wreaths don't seem to be well known in the UK, but they are essential in Germany. I haven't had one since I moved to England 7 years ago and I miss the tradition every year. So this time I decided to get all the components and make one myself. It is a traditional ring of fir branches, decorated with pine cones, berries and little baubles. There are four candles on it for each of the four Sundays before Christmas. I love it!
As knitters, you have probably heard of knitted wreaths so I thought I'd show you my favourite four. Enjoy!
