while in Vermont this summer / fall we went to one of our regular stops, actually two ~ first was the Tasha Tudor Museum in Brattleboro and the second ~  A lovely sheep farm where I spied some beautiful light grey yarn, that was available this year.  I just knew I had to have some to knit My Cottage Elegance “Kindred Spirit Wool Shawl”  in the exact shade of Tasha’s shawl!!!

And what a perfect knitting project while traveling ~ so easy I can knit while riding (not driving) a long taking in the beautiful autumnal scenery of Vermont.

Vermont – very loved, well cared for sheep. In my PDF pattern, I share with you were you can purchase your yarn from a USA, Vermont spinnery.

Have you been working on a knitting project ? I have been working on another Tasha  Style Shawl!  I love this style of shawl and have a better understanding of why Tasha appeared to be wearing one so often. The mornings and evening in Vermont have a breath of chilliness  (even in summer and fall) and this style of  shawl , hand knit of wool or cotton, is just the right amount of warmth needed. What I really love about this shawl is its sturdy, functional elegance!!

  1. actually, I have been working on the very same project! But in red 🙂 also working on a baby blanket for my little one coming in January. I was just able to visit the museum myself at the beginning of the month! Such a treat! You’ve got beautiful photos here!~

  2. Hi Heather, Thanks for stopping by! Are you knitting your red shawl in the triangle shape or the red rectangle shawl with the pretty lace border that I see Tasha wearing wrapped around her neck several times ~ this would make a great nursing shawl! I love going by the museum on my summer travels, it is so nice to see elements of Tasha’s life and being able to talk with Kindred spirits ~ everyone at the museum is so friendly! Thank you on the photo’s ~ I have two camera I use because I do not always like to carry the bigger one , but it does take nicer pic and I’m still learning all of it’s features. So much to learn here in blog land!
