Folksy Friday - Chocolate and Oranges

Am quite busy at the moment with baby presents and custom orders. Plus have a few balls stashed away to make myself a couple of toasty items over the Christmas holidays.
But with thoughts turning to Christmas, I was going through my stash and saw I had some lovely burnt orange pure wool and a ball of chocolate pure wool. And I started to think chocolate oranges - after all they are an essential part of the festive "5 a day". I started having a look at stitch patterns and found one that gave a lovely medieval / Elizabethan embroidered sleeve effect. Then I got to thinking.... hmmmm but they come in segments, so hence stripes of just orange and the colour stitch pattern evolved and after a bit of magic with a crochet hook this is the result:

And moving on, I got to thinking why not do a Folksy Friday on the "Chocolate and Oranges" theme, so here goes with a selection of items from some of this week's December Elves and other busy Folksters:

          1. Ickle Imogen      2. Moody Cow Designs
             3. Hats and More    4. Unique Beaded Gems 
            5. NofKants Curios      6. Cosmic Eden
