O Tannenbaum, how knitted are your leaves?

If I had years to work on it, and the inclination to work that long on such a thing, I would SO make a tree like this:

Yep, that's totally knitted!

I have seen some Christmas trees and other little trees on ravelry, and they are often super cute, but they are miniatures.  How cool would it be to have a life-size knitted tree?  Beats my plastic one any day!

Find these trees on 1, 2, and 3

Smilla, Girl!

My boy loves his dog, Smilla.  Sometimes he calls her, "Smilla, girl." Just so cute.
