Last I heard it was 5 degrees and rainy at Spitalfields. That's not very cold.

I don't see a problem with wearing it. It's seasonal, not festive.

Fair Isle sweaters have no special association with Christian. You can wear them at any time of the year if the weather is cold enough.

There's no rule. I bought this one in October, I'm wearing it today

You're right, I hear they're quite popular among Scientologists.

The Reindeer print might be out of character after New Years

But the fair isle sweater is great for even chilly summer days/nights.

The exact pictured Nordic print might be quietly stored once the warmer days of late Spring arrive.
