Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire

Making Christmas stuff in September is certainly a bizarre experience. Especially when one lives in California where it is currently 86 degrees.

Yeah, yeah, another F.O.. I'm not crazy about this one but it'll do. Each time I make one of these monstrosities I learn something new. Like ... one should do the Fair Isle ALL the way down the leg or it "flares" a bit. And if your instinct tell you, "Hey, you're starting the toe too early", you should probably listen to it.

I do like the blue and the white together although do you think it looks more like a Hanukkhah stocking? I don't think they have such things though. Perhaps I could start a new trend in Judaism - sort of breathe new life into an old religion. Or perhaps I should just stick to the knitting.
