Lots of knitters and other crafters have become enamored with the British drama “Downton Abbey” (which I lovingly call a soap opera with a British accent), and Shannon at Luv in the Mommyhood is so excited for its return to American TV that she’s hosting a Downton Abbey knit and crochet along when the series returns next month.
She’s a big cheater and has been watching as it airs in the UK, but for the rest of us this will be a fun time to cozy up with our needles and hooks and see what the Crawleys and their servants have been up to.
The idea is to knit or crochet a Downton-inspired project while the series is airing (it begins Jan. 9, 2013). Those who register for the knitalong and start a project (it doesn’t have to get finished) during the almost month of the knitalong will be eligible for prizes. You can learn more and get in on the project discussion at Luv in the Mommyhood’s Ravelry page. If you need inspiration she’s even got a cowl pattern you can purchase for the project.
I don’t know about you, but I could really use some fun knitting to kick of 2013, so I might be joining in on this one. If you do, too, I’d love to know it.
