Happy 99th Birthday Tasha Tudor ~ Memories

I find many moments in my days where I think of Tasha Tudor and how much we have in common ~ as many of us kindred spirits do!

I first became acquainted with Tasha Tudor in the early 1990’s,  through two of my favorite magazine ( the kindred spirit connection begins), Victoria magazine and herb companion magazine. Just after this introduction, my daughter read, in the locale newspaper, that Tasha was going to be giving a presentation at the Opryland hotel in Nashville Tn, at he heart of the country antique show – now anyone who knows Tasha knows  her love of antiques and that she attended this show regular. So tickets were purchased and a short one hours drive to Nashville and my interest in Tasha was firmly grounded . The presentation was wonderful, Tasha was a delight to listen to and to watch draw. She spoke so eloquently and I love her tact and creative way she answered questions ( some I never would have the nerve to ask). She did indeed, lift up her skirt and show us her petticoat!! She drew several pencil drawing while speaking – a gander, owl etc that was auctioned at the end of the presentation. My daughter and I hurried off to the gift room to make our purchases before the long, one hour drive home. 😉 We were not the only ones who hurried in to the gift ~ Tasha and Seth came shortly after us to her set up for signing books. We did get to accidental ~ ease drop on some business that she and Seth ( I now know who he was – I did not at the time) were discussing before they realized we were there!

I thought today I would share some from my past blog post for your Tasha Tudor birthday celebration enjoyment.

I have been able to experience the joy of three visit to the Tasha Tudor Museum. I created a blog post and photo’s of the first two. I was given permission by Amy and Natalie to take and post the picture. (Please do not remove from my site with out my permission.)

I do wish I could have sat by the hearth, on cool winter evening knitting with Tasha ~ watching her style …how she held her needles…how fast she knit …. just how many projects she has on the needles at one time…listening as she shared her wisdom and knitting experience. I did get to talk to someone very special about Tasha’s shawl and many other insights into Tasha’s life.

O’Connor Irish Cottage Style Knitting  I : Now that you are comfortable let me show you how I how I hold my yarn….

First  ~ We will  bring the yarn across your small/ pinkie finger ~ just once ( sorry that looks like twice I do not know where that top yarn came from), the yarn really does not stay there after you get your yarn placed, and start knitting.
Second ~ you then bring the yarn to the top between your ring finger and middle finger. and back down between your small/pinkie finger
Third picture ~ bring the yarn to the back and across the back your ring and middle finger and up to he top, between your middle finger and index/pointer finger.
I have included a video from my Vimeo account (at the bottom of the post), ~ A new up-dated video coming soon! I hope will help ~ I am working on my production skills, so please excuse some of the focusing and back ground noises. If you have any question please leave a comment.

Next, we bring the yarn across your ring finger and down (to the back of your hand) between your ring finger and your pink / small finger

Third  ~ bring the yarn to the back (this is the yarn at the top in the picture) and across the back your ring and middle finger and up to he top, between your middle finger and index/pointer finger. When your knit the index finger of course does a lot of the work and your thumb keeps your knitted fabric moving along. Since your yarn is coming between the index finger and the middle this will naturally be where your tension is controlled – naturally, you should not have to squeeze your fingers together,  you will achieve a natural  occurring tension as you become more comfortable with this style of knitting.

If you have any question please leave a comment. Follow my blog so you get notification of new post with about Tasha adventures~ seeking Kindred Spirits! I will be looking even closer at Tasha’s shawls  and have some insights from a very special friend. I will up-date you on the progress of my shawl pattern.

Knitting Tasha Tudor.

I do wonder what Tasha is knitting in this nice cozy looking picture???  Maybe another grey shawl, the grey shawl appears to be her everyday work shawl ~ so we would certainly need several on hand. I always have a “Kindred Spirit” or “Cottage Elegance” shawl on the needles. I find this type of knitting to be a calming knit.

Tasha Tudor Christmas Red Hand Knit cottage shawl Tasha Tudor Tuesday Birthday hand knit shawls tutorial instructions patterns

Here is the current Tasha Tudor style cottage shawl that I am working on. I do seem to always have one in progress because of the many kindred spirits who request for me to custom knit a shawl, just for them!

It is a bit hard to keep up with knitting for my gran-babies, daughters and my shop. So by popular request I have decided to offer my PATTERN FOR SALE, so that my friends can knit  a “Kindred Spirit”  Tasha Tudor style shawl of their own.

My shawl pattern will include my “Cottage Elegance” “Kindred Spirit” Tasha Tudor style grey wool shawl, with added bonus of  “Cottage Elegance Cotton Shawl” – as previously featured on my blog. Along with a few extras.

My pattern is – indeed ready for purchase;

Forever Christmas ~ in July….

Christmas in July Hand made Christmas Hand knit dish cloths Sinterklaas, St Nickolas, Christmas, Advent with Tasha Tudor

Merry Christmas – in July. Have you started your working on your handmade Christmas gifts?

The greatest gift is a portion of thyself.~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

What better way to give a portion of thyself than in a well thought out meaningful and useful gift. And now is the perfect time to start making a list of the love ones and friends you would like to delight with a lovely handmade gift.

Hand made Christmas, knitting with Tasha Tudor, Forever Christmas Gifts, Old fashioned Christmas Gifts,

Like Tasha , I also work on my gift’s throughout the year! so I’m not quite so rushed as Christmas approaches.

Then we are not quite so rushed as Christmas approaches.

Old fashioned Christmas Gifts making with Tasha Tudor, Forever Christmas, Advent, St Nickolas

A little added touch to round out the theme of a gift is to include something purchased. Maybe a bar of soap, some hand lotion or for the kitchen maybe a wooden utensil.

I do however like to add some finishing touches,  when I’m making the finial decision of who ~ gets ~ what, it adds to the festive Christmas feel. Here is a picture of some of the types of cloths I hand knit  with the addition of some purchased, specialty bars of soap.  You could always make your own soap, have you ever made soap? I have not ~ yet!!

The many color and designs of my Hand knit face and dish cloths. There are many cotton yarns available out there some are very good and hold up well, and there are some "I do not love"

The many color and designs of my Hand knit  cloths.

There are many cotton yarns available out there, some are very good and hold up well. It is nice to keep some hand-knit cloths on hand for when you need an unexpected gift ~ such as guest bath set, they also make really nice gift set when paired with a wooden spoon, spatulas, candles or lovely decorative soaps.

Hand knitted cloths tutorials

My lovely clothes have many more uses than just face and dish cloths. 

Hand – knit cloths also make good candle mats, coaster, napkins, pot holders and hot pads. All you need to do to change the size of your cloth and it’s thickness by simply changing the size of your needles and the number of stitches you cast on.

 Tutorial for Basic hand knit dish cloth, pot holder, candle mat, napkin

Here is a rather basic  but pretty cloth.

You can also get differing effects depending on the color of yarn you use especially with the variegated yarns, like the ones pictured above.

Tasha Tudor style Cottage Shawls, such as my “Kindred Spirit” Vermont wool and Mohair and “Cottage Elegance”  cotton shawls also make lovely gifts !!

I do believe the best gifts are handmade gifts and a gift  that a person will actually use. I have gifted my hand-knit cloths and shawls to many throughout the years and to see them in use in their homes for many years to come!!

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!!

Tuesdays with Tasha Tudor; Tasha’s shawls – A closer look!

Tasha Tudo'rs hand knit shwla

Tasha ~wearing her shawl~  while baking!! Take a close look at the edge!

 

I have often thought ~ that upon closer look, the grey shawl that we so very often see Tasha Tudor wearing, does not have the yarn over lace edging that so many kindred spirits use for knitting their Tasha style shawl . This type of edging can be quite annoying when it catches on things ~ especially when going about your daily task in the kitchen, garden or even the barn.

So I designed and knit a shawl that I believe looks a lot more like Tasha’s. I think Tasha would agree  – do you not??   I have recently found out from Tasha’s daughter, Bethany that my shawl is in fact  just like Tasha’s and that her Mom’s grey shawl did not have the yarn over lace edging.

She was so delighted that her children had purchased one of my grey Vermont wool shawls for her (their Mom) as a Christmas gift. I was happily ~ surprised with a phone call from her ” I love my Tasha Tudor ~cottage style~ shawl. I love the wool it’s so soft and still contains a soft lovely scent of lanolin and I love that the wool is grey and came from Vermont where Tasha lived ”
