Downton Abbey, a knitted Christmas present and a Mystery.

I could not resist! So I ordered a small Charm Pack. It contains 32 of 5" fabrics
from the series. I decided a bit from each of the ladies. The 5" comes in 
lady Mary, lady Edith, lady Sibyl as well as some other mixed fabrics.
 Gorgeous colours and with different patterns.
Such a lovely pale 1/2 a yard of the house itself .
Will be cut into 5" and mixed with the fabrics below.
While watching a replay of the series, I checked the fabrics on 
our coffee table.Will be a lovely table topper one day. 
Great combination of the fabrics, all `up my alley`:))
Fabrics ordered from Cotton Patch Shop in UK.
I showed you the yarn in a picture this summer !! Here is the
finished  jumper for my grand daughter. No snow at my place
 yet, but as you can see the grass is white with frost.
The pattern and yarn are from Sandnes Duo, no 1104.
So happy that another Christmas-present is done :))
Glad a friend of a good friend of mine finished the jumper
for me otherwise I might have been knitting all through next year!!
Joined Merete`s Mystery this year as well. Fabrics now to be measured,
then washed and cut. Do hope I manage to follow the instructions from
week to week. Made such a great mystery table topper last year :-)
Might use these fabrics, but seeing the picture here, the greens are a wee
wee bit pale, I think :-)  More from me later one day.
Thanks for all nice comments on my blog! I love hearing from you,
Cheers, Grethe xx

The fabrics are lovely! I think our local quilt store has ordered some. Your sweater is beautiful. It will be well loved. I've only seen the first two seasons of DA, but I've asked Santa for season 3!
