My big huge take-a-bite-out-of-it love/obsession this week is Downton Abbey.
They say true love is hard to find, but I’ve found it easy to come by with Downton Abbey. From the very first episode, I found myself enamored The plot, the writing, the characters, Maggie Smith (naturally), the clothes and the beautiful misty, romantic colour story have kept me drawn in and thoroughly obsessed.
After some research into potential fangirl knitting patterns, I have discovered this totally wearable and satisfactorily geeky option:
The pattern is Lucy Cloche from Knitscene, Winter 2012
Just plain love it; and a girl can never have too many hats. From looking at others projects, this looks best when it is a little bit oversized. Must knit in olive merino with a purple and/or plum velvet “ribbon”.
If you haven’t checked out this series and you get weak in the knees for absolute romance, broken hearts, beautiful cinematography, historically accurate dress and Edwardian sensibilities, than this is the show for you! I strongly recommend it.
And just a small sampling of Lady Dowager’s wit
