this pattern and some left over worsted thick and thin 100% wool from Joann's. They were quick work but I have yet to find out if they fit.

Baltic Imports which is a beautiful gift shop specializing in Eastern European/Baltic pieces which happens to be right next door to the fabulous Ukrainian deli Kramarczuk's in Minneapolis.
this pattern but I made it quite a few rows longer because the first one I'd knit just barely covered his ears. Can you see our new dusting of snow on the ground behind me?

jitrnice (say eether-neetza) which is a traditional Czech sausage. At first glance I thought this was a word that could use a few more vowels. Dave's parents described a dish that sounded like haggis because it is a casing stuffed with ground meat, spices and barley. It is basically a hash that you eat with potatoes and I have to say it was delicious. Dave's brother procured this for us. I'm not sure if it came from a locker or maybe an ethnic deli of some sort or maybe he just knows a guy.
