I finished the Downton Abbey Mystery Knit Along project just last night, after watching the latest episode of the show. This knit along was a little different from the ones I have participated in before. I knew ahead of time it was going to be a shawl, the mystery is the different patterns that were knitted into the shawl.
To start, I purchased two skeins of Lorna’s Laces Honor yarn in the color Bated Breath. Isn’t it pretty??? It has gorgeous turquoise, purple, taupe, gray, and blue. And it is so soft! I really enjoyed trying the new stitches and seeing how they looked in this beautiful yarn.
The thing is, I ran out of yarn before the pattern was finished. There were actually 12 more rows of knitting to the pattern, but I ran out of yarn, so I just bound off. Do I regret it? No way! I think it is perfect. I finished the shawl with garter stitching (knitting every row) just as it started. So for me, the shawl finished at the right place in the pattern.
I can just imagine wrapping myself up in this soft coziness during these cold days! It will definitely keep me warm! (Which isn’t such a bad thing, as we have about 4 inches of the white stuff falling as I write this!)
Don’t I look a lot warmer? I sure think I do!
I can’t wait to see how my mom’s shawl turned out. I think she was running out of yarn also, so we will see where she ends up!
