The weekend after Thanksgiving seems to be the traditional time to start to decorate your home for Christmas. In this neighbourhood most people go to town with lights and decorations so starting early gives you time to get everything illuminated!
Here is the first of my Christmas knitting: stockings for the boys. This one for Adam.
The pattern is Ann Norling 'Snowflake Stocking'. Knitted in Cascade Pastaza and Berocco Metallic FX. Detail of the intarsia snowflake:
These will be for stocking presents so I made them longer than the pattern.
