I'm not telling what happens, otherwise it will spoil it for you. But I am still recovering from last night's episode.

Get a large box of tissues, that's all I'm saying.

I'm almost ready.

My yarn for the DA knit a-long (KAL) should be here tomorrow! The idea is to have swatched by Sunday and then cast on just before the show starts. Realistically I want to give the show my full attention so I'll probably cast on before and then knit after the show. Since it's a mystery KAL I still don't know what it is except that it's not a hat or socks and it is an accessory with some lace in it. So maybe a scarf or shawl?

I unfortunately know of one spoiler (which I won't share) but I'm excited to see how even that plays out.

How fun!  I saw you mention this on the other topic Milla started, but didn't pay attention.  Please keep us updated on your progress.  Wish I had that kind of talent. :rollseyes:

There's a program on called "Secrets of Highclere Castle" on television just preceding "Downton Abbey" tonight. It's about the history of the castle where DA is filmed.

I just this minute finished watching the show on Highclere.  How beautiful and interesting.  I've got to find the next "Secrets of ....." shows and make sure I record them.

I enjoyed it too!  I really liked the "Lady" of the castle.   :D  She seemed very down to earth.  I was amazed at the numbers (5000 acres, and so many windows, etc). I'd love to visit and take a tour some day.
Did you watch the new Downton Abbey episode as well?  I recorded it and watched the first half (to the end of the church wedding scenes).

I for sure watched the newest episode, while recording it, to prevent any untoward event from preventing me from reaching my goal of watching the show!  :lol:
