Even the Empire State Building is celebrating Chanukah :-)

I would have been more impressed if they had 2 towers for the 2nd night, and then a third tomorrow....

Jacque, these are my favorite pair of Chanukah socks. The magen davids are in gold metallic threads, and on the soles they are plain but say "Happy Hannukah".

I need to do laundry Friday to make sure I have enough holiday socks to last all eight days, but it's sort of a theme of Chanukah to make do with not enough. One of the miracles of Chanukah is that oil for one night lasted for 8 days. My 3 pairs of socks will also have to last for 8 days, thanks to the miracle of modern washing machines.

In case you were wondering, the *other* miracle was that the Macabees won a war against the Greeks despite being outnumbered and outclassed, and then got to rebuild the Temple.

Nothing to do with Chanukah, but I finally finished this over the weekend. It was almost done when I put it down last but I'm glad it's completed. This project contains the most (and most notable) *customization* I've done on a piece, and I like how it turned out.

Pattern: Spring Lineup by The Trilogy
Fabric: Don't hate me, but I'm not sure, it's just whatever I got at the shop in Virginia. I *think* it's the recommended fabric.
Threads: recommended, except for the clouds where I used Whisper.
Additional changes: I can't do French knots and am too lazy to learn, so I used beads for the animals' eyes. Instead of blue cross stitches for the *rain* I used blue beads - they don't match the Old Blue Paint of the rest of the piece 100%, but I like the colors together.

I'm off to catch Project Runway. Ttys!
