The first series of Downton Abbey is currently being screened on DSTv on Sundays at 8.30pm (the rest of the world has probably seen series 1 through 56 already but never mind). Last night we watched episode 3, and I got this far with the bellflower. Just 25cm to go, and I’m starting to feel quite pleased with it. It’s not the best pattern for a self-striping yarn, I know, but now that I’ve got the hang of it I’m definitely going to make a couple more.
And isn’t Maggie Smith just one of the best character actresses in the world?!
To be continued…
I’m ashamed to say I have never watched a single episode of Downton Abbey – I must be the only person in the world!!
I’ve missed it like Patch…and we both live in England!
I can’t rent it with my DVD postal company and don’t want to buy it, but I feel from the talk around it (and the fact that the fab Julian Fellowes wrote it – recommend his book ‘Past Imperfect’) that I’ve probably missed out on something rather special. :-S
Glad you like our export. :-D
