I also knitted Christmas crackers! For those of you on the New York side of the Pond, these are not the edible kind but are what the French might call "bon-bons". The larger ones are used as table decorations and the small ones go on the tree. The "real" ones are made of paper and cardboard and when you pull them they break open with a snap to disgorge paper hat, silly motto and cheap plastic toy! These knitted ones don't do anything except decorate!
