Downton Abbey's second season ended a couple of weeks ago and every Sunday I still think to myself "Oh goody, there's another episode of Downton Abbey on tonight" and then I get disappointed when I realize that no, there's not another episode coming for awhile. So in the meantime I'm entertaining myself with knitting inspired by Downton Abbey.
Update for 2013! Season Three has started showing in the US (the UK has already seen it ages ago) and more and more knitters want to celebrate their love for Downton by knitting something Downton-inspired.

Chiagu has been designing a sweater seen on Downton Abbey on Lady Sybil. It's quite a pretty pattern and she'll have it available to knit soon. Keep an eye on this one. I bet you're going to see a lot of Downton inspired patterns this fall.
Chicknits has tracked down some knitting pictures from the Downton era. She's even found a knitting pattern!

I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
