Something to drop...

One of the other patterns to come out of last year's advent is this cute but irreverent pattern.  If you aren't interested in making an "F" bomb it can also be done in bright colours to be an ornament.   Hopefully I'll share a picture version that is more like an ornament tomorrow.
