  1. Alright, Shannon, you've convinced me! I just signed up for the kal. I've got my two basic stitches down and have made three plain scarves - I might need some help choosing a pattern that is cute and for SUPER beginners, but I'm excited!!

  2. I don't think we get season 3 until early Feb :( But I usually sit and knit to it (I could always re-watch in Jan and knit along and just not read any of the spoilers. (I'm in Australia and we have to wait for the Tennis to finish before we get all the new season shows)

  4. I'm doing the Jimmy Beans Wool KAL, have you seen this? It's a mystery pattern for Lady Violet's Gauntlets in Lorna's Laces limited edition colorway "Christmas at Downton". It's not that much knitting, so I want to make the Carina Spencer hat as well. So I think I will choose the hat for this KAL. Thanks for doing this!
