Last week, this love devolved into the only place any of my fandoms can truly end up -- yarn. It is a widely known fact that Roman Hills dyes Downton Abbey themed yarn. And it sells out pretty darn fast. It was one of those things that looks pretty and makes me smile, but surely I would never buy it. Wrong. Last week I managed to hit an update after work and picked up not only the Sybil yarn for myself, but also a skein of the Mary yarn for Andrea (if I'm going to do something, I'm going to enable at least one person to join me). All things can be justified by coupon codes.
I love my Sybil yarn already. It is absolutely lovely and the colors are clearly inspired by Lady Sybil's modern pants outfit from season one.
Clearly this skein is too special to knit mere socks, so I have matched it up with another skein from my stash to knit a test of the pattern I am planning to use for my wedding shawl. I have some other projects to work on first, but I can't wait to cast on.
