Oh my, this looks like the perfect cozy, elegant cottage setting! The blue chair looks like the perfect spot to relax and loose one’s self in one of the many books on the shelves. I might would add a matching ottoman / foot stool to prop my feet on ( as I am short and my feet do not always reach the floor Lol ). Did you notice the two ivy plants trailing down from the mantle, aren’t they just lovely. Now I would move that wooded chair out , even though it’s pretty, I think I would prefer it in the dining room and add a lovely antique rocker in its place! I can just smell the intoxicating aroma of the forced narcissus on the side table accented in the glow of the beeswax taper at its side. Such a beautiful little nook to sit and knit a Tasha Tudor style”Cottage Elegance Kindred Spirit Shawl” or maybe work on a bit of embroidery or other handwork. Please do have a seat and join me…….
Here I am, nice and cozy in one of my custom knit ~ Tasha Tudor style-“Cottage Elegance Kindred Spirit Shawls”. I knit my kindred spirit shawl a in a lovely shade of grey Vermont wool yarn. I will share with you in the pattern where I purchase my yarn.
My PDF Pattern for my Tasha Tudor Style ” Cottage Elegance Kindred Spirit Shawl”, is now available for purchase – in my etsy shop!
In my pattern I share with you the story of my shawl along with instruction for knitting your very Tasha Tudor Style grey wool “Kindred Spirit Shawl”, with the bonus instructions for knitting my “Cottage Elegance Cotton shawl”- as previously featured on my blog. Within my story pattern I share with you, what yarn I use and the best size needles to use. Plus my “Cottage Elegance Scarf” pattern, that works great for layering with your Shawl, many suggestions for using left over yarn!

Oh, Gran your shawl is so soft (as she is rubbing it on her face), will you teach me how to knit one – in purple!!
Well, of course I will!
A nice cozy corner of my home where I sit and knit. I have a couple cozy corners where I knit my Tasha Tudor style cottage shawls and work on my many other hand work projects.
Do you have favorite little nooks that you have created and arranged in your home, just for you, where you can relax and take in the beauty around you…. looking out a window, a favorite picture or vignette ?!?
Here I am with my new friends, Bethany Tudor – Tasha Tudors daughter, and my new china doll, Sally-Anne Tudor. I adopted Sally-Anne while traveling in Vermont. Sally-Anne has started on quite an adventure…….
Sally-Anne was delighted to make friends with Bethany’s doll, Lucinda.
Lucinda was lovingly handcrafted for Bethany by her mom ~ Tasha Tudor.
Bethany and Lucinda have had the pleasure of meeting many Kindred Spirits.
My doll family continues to grow ~ as long-lost relatives reunite 🙂 The girls got busy right away with their special bamboo and rosewood needles, helping to knit some doll shawls to put our little etsy boutique / shop……
I have a limited number of my 100 % wool from Vermont, hand knit doll shawls available in two sizes – in my etsy shop:
Sally-Anne: ” How many more Tasha Tudor style shawls do we need to knit for our kindred spirit friends? My arms are getting tired. I think we should sell the pattern to those who would love to knit a kindred spirit shawl for themselves”.
Indeed, I agree with Sally-Anne!! The pattern is now ready for purchase here;
