TUESDAY WITH TASHA TUDOR ~ SHAWLS
Many of us take delight in escaping into Tasha’s world, through the many books about Tasha and her creative life. We can’t help but notice the lovely, cozy warm grey hand-knit shawl, that we so often see her wearing over her shoulders ~ in the kitchen, while stirring up some delectable dish, in the garden while picking some fresh bay leaves, in her flower garden whilst eradicating those pesky weeds, in the barn while milking her goats……..
I have noticed in my many books about Tasha Tudor, that she is wearing a shawl quite often ~ almost year round. She is wearing her shawl as she goes about her task of the day — from the barn, to the garden, to the kitchen. If you have ever visited Vermont you would understand why…. Tasha states ” I believe in keeping warm”!
***By popular request****
I am working on releasing the pattern for both of my Tasha Tudor style cottage shawls with a couple of special features and bonuses ~ in true Tasha Tudor style.
******PATTERN IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE***
My Pattern Tasha Tudor Style ” Cottage Elegance Kindred spirit Shawl”, is now available for purchase – in my etsy shop!
Within my pattern I share with you the story of I came to knit my “Cottage Elegance shawl” including the instruction for knitting your very own grey wool “Kindred Spirit Shawl” with the bonus instructions for knitting my “Cottage Elegance Cotton shawl”- in two variations, as previously featured on my blog. I share with you how you can achieve varying looks with your shawl”s by the simple choice of yarns.
