we've got a pinboard for our downton abbey knit along! woot woot! i started putting together a downton abbey roundup and well....got overwhelmed. i think i just love downton abbey too much..lol. the post would have been way too long to put up on here so trust me when i say that a pin board was a much better solution. now you can all view it and get inspired! it doesn't mean my roundups are gone, just that for this kal i'm going to try something new.

before you ask what pattern and yarn am i using i can't say yet! hehehe, you'll have to wait till next wed! i still have to do my swatch though. remember how important gauge is ladies. here's a helpful post we did on the importance of swatching. it's better to make yourself do a swatch then to knit a whole project only to have it not work out. it hurts...trust me on that one :) and for those of you still choosing yarns etc i've also added our link for help with that as well.
- gauge and what it is
- choosing yarns stress free
*you can find tons of helpful links and resources on our permanent kal page. you can also click on each knit along and find a handy page with all the links, guest posts and helpful info from each knit along. i refer to these on a regular basis. i'm always learning something new.
and just for fun i thought we could take a little quiz to see which member of the abbey we are most like. what was your answer? i was surprised at mine! p.s. i love seeing the cast members of downton all dressed up in clothes from present time. so lovely! i couldn't resist pinning some and also some gorgeous shots of the men of downton from GQ mag. they are my fave!!!! love them!
