I knit these little bunnies last year, but they're so cheerful on our mantel that I thought they deserved another chance to wish everyone Merry Christmas.
I don't have much knitting to show off since I've been cooking since last Wednesday, although I did knit my friend Julie a little mitten as part of a swap we did, but I forgot to take a pic of it before I sent it. I also knit a little sweater ornament for a non-knitting friend, using a pattern From the Wool Room. It's knit from the top down, and I think it may be my favorite "tiny sweater" pattern. I've tried a lot of them.
Russ and went to Solvang last Monday to buy some medisterpølse (Danish sausage) at Nielsen's Market for our Christmas Eve dinner. We also made a little stop at Olsen's Danish Bakery for some Kringle. Russ isn't too enthused about going to the touristy shops, but I did get a chance to buy a few little Danish paper ornaments.
I can understand why Ronald Reagan and Michael Jackson would have wanted to live around Solvang. The view from the mission is so beautiful. We always take the backroads home just to enjoy the beautiful landscape.
