I'm also using the recommended yarns, as I love them. Two skeins are Vanna's Choice and three are Unique, a new yarn from Lion Brand. The Unique is very soft and nice. A bit like Homespun, but not nearly so 'hairy'.
Oh, and as to watching Downton during a stitching marathon, forget that! You'd miss a raised brow, or curious look! It is just all-engrossing! Even DH is caught up in it. I'm enjoying it so much more than the hit or miss I did with it when it played on TV. Now I understand the whys and whats. We are half-way through Season 3. Season 4 doesn't play in the States until January. What to do; what to do? Perhaps check The Tudors out of the library? Sure beats anything on TV! And, if I'd go back to crocheting ruffle scarfs or similar, I could hook and watch at the same time maybe. But not during Downton.
