Chunky yarn rocks.

And now for my final Downton-inspired piece of the month.

Creative Counselor: Show off shawl

While sewing may be my first love, sometimes I just get in the mood to knit.  2015 was very low on knitting for me, but when cold weather hit in November and December, I had the urge to hunker down with a warm blanket and a ball of wool.

This is the Showoff shawl, which is a free pattern on Ravelry.  What’s even better is that it uses a super chunky yarn which made it really fast.  I normally hate knitting shawls — they’re so repetitive and taken so. darn. long.  But, throw a chunky yarn in the mix and they just fly by!

Time will tell whether I actually wear this shawl.  My track record with shawls is not great, but this one is relatively compact so I could easily use it as a scarf.

Well, with January coming to a close, we’re moving on to a new monthly theme — Mad Men!  I confess that I have never seen an episode of Mad Men.  Guess I should remedy that!
