The new Week 2 clues for the knitted Downton Abbey Mystery KAL shawl were released Sunday. I spent a lot of time today choosing the stitches I’d use for my crocheted version, and figuring out how to work the increases in, etc. Now I am crocheting them, to try to make sure everything works out correctly.
EDIT: I APOLOGISE FOR BEING LATE WITH DOWNTON ABBEY SHAWL POSTS/INSTRUCTIONS. “LADY EDITH’S LONDON NIGHTS” WEEK 2 HAS BEEN POSTED, AND I HOPE TO SHARE “TEA WITH LADY GRANTHAM” WEEK 2, LATER TONIGHT. I WILL ALWAYS POST THEM AS SOON AS I CAN. I HOPE THAT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THAT I AM AN OLDER WOMAN WITH CHRONIC ILLNESS, AND WHEN I AM NOT WELL I AM UNFORTUNATELY NOT ABLE TO SPEND THE MANY HOURS CROCHETING, KNITTING, WRITING, AND TYPING THAT A NEW PATTERN REQUIRES. I KNOW THIS IS UPSETTING FOR THOSE WHO ARE WAITING FOR NEW ROWS TO WORK, BUT IT IS SADLY BEYOND MY CONTROL–OF COURSE I NEVER WISH FOR THESE EXTENDED TIMES OF ILLNESS, AND CERTAINLY DO MY BEST TO GET BETTER QUICKLY SO I CAN CONTINUE ON MY FIBRE ADVENTURES AND SHARE THEM WITH YOU.
I have been having computer issues, on top of a few weeks of illness, and many of the patterns I’d hoped to have finished/for sale are in limbo. Computer problems are why the Week 1 shawl clues have not been put into pdf files. However, I will be getting a new copy of Microsoft Office and as soon as it is installed, I will be able to get the Shawl clues into pdf files, which I know will make it easier for everyone to use. I will also be able to get the new Fish Hat pattern finished, as well as several others! Thanks, everyone who is waiting, for your patience.
I have been able to get one pattern ready, and it will be for sale tomorrow, with a link here on my blog as well as on its Ravelry page: the “Molesley’s Roadworks Cowl” is crocheted with 200g of worsted weight yarn and has fun, versatile, removable fringes. Suitable for men or women, it is very quick to crochet, and uses a stitch I found in a Victorian baby sock design.
