Downton Abbey KAL
Anyone watch Downton Abbey? I'm thinking of doing the season 4 KAL. I need to find some yarn I can use though since I can't use wool.

Maybe a cotton blend? I was just looking at Little Knits but didn't see anything in the no-wool that screamed Downton Abbey. You might check it.

I don't care about the color being Downton Abbey particularly. I might run over to the yarn store today and see what they have.

I love Downton Abbey, but I don't think I could knit while watching it. It's one of those shows that take my entire concentration, esp when the Lady Countess starts in with her quips

Now Doctor Who, which I also love, is great for a KAL. I got some old Tom Baker era DVDs for Christmas and have been happily knitting my season 18 Doctor Who scarf while watching them

Good luck tho. Once you find your wool, have you decided what you will knit?

It's a KAL so everyone will be knitting the same thing..in this case a shawl.

I can't knit and watch either (nor can many others) so I plan to work on it during the week between shows.

Got my yarn! Told DH not to ask how much it was...just better if he doesn't know. At least till he checks the ATM account. I very rarely buy myself nice yarn so I'm not worried.

It's Sweet Georgia in a colorway called cherry. It's the wrong weight so let's hope it works!

That's beautiful yarn and will make a gorgeous shawl. I'm glad you got silk and hope the wool doesn't bother you. I don't think you would have chosen the yarn if you really thought it would be a problem so I expect it will be fine. Enjoy!
