Season 4 of Downton Abbey starts tonight! Are you watching? I love Downton Abbey. LOVE! Just a great show with great stories. If you haven’t watched, go back and start with season one. You’ll be hooked.
I have just made a last minute decision to participate in the Jimmy Beans Wool Downton Abbey Mystery KAL 2014. As long as I can find enough yarn in my stash….
For those non-knitters out there, a KAL is a Knit-A–Long. A bunch of knitters all knitting the same pattern at the same time. A mystery KAL means you have no idea what the finished product will look like and you get clues (or pattern parts) each week to knit the next portion. So. Fun.
I participated in last season’s KAL and made these Lady Violet’s Dinner Gauntlets:
The only thing we know about this season’s KAL is that it is a shawl of some sort. AND, as a twist, instead of just getting pattern parts, the KAL will include instructions like “When Bates sneezes, knit 4 rows in seed stitch”. HA! How fun is that? SERIOUSLY!
So, I couldn’t wait and I just went to my stash… on first inspection, it appears I have two options:
Stay tuned. And don’t forget to tune in tonight!
