pig harvest







here is alba with the pigs. she won them. in denmark it is tradition to make a yummy kind of ricepudding for christmas with loads of chopped almonds in and then one whole. the one who gets the whole will get a prize.
in my family it is always a homemade pressie. and it has always been my father's chore to make it. but this year we had to rethink and i got the task this year. next year i may or may not do it again.
i have decided that i would love to knit a lamb and chicken collection for easter though. i never thought this was my thing at all, but i have really taken a liking in little knitted animals.
and i think alba is going to love playing pig farmer. isn't that every little girl's biggest dream ;-))

Alba is so cute! I bet she'll have great fun with those pigs. Knitting animals can be fun, if only I could avoid all the seaming up! I'd love to see your chicken for Easter. Happy New Year!

Oh she's adorable as usual.

Thank you so much for the Christmas cards - the children got them a few days apart, the last one on December 23, so it was perfect timing. They are so happy especially about the music...they'd never seen that before. Thanks again Merete...
