I was browsing my free month of Amazon Prime and came across this show called Tess of the D’Urbervilles. Gemma Arterton stars as Tess. We like Gemma’s acting and that is what prompted me to watch this show I had never heard of.
While I was enjoying this show I had a sudden fascination with the shawl that Tess wears. I love the dark brown, the way she wraps it around and seems to be tied in the back to stay on is some scene, and I love that its going to be a challenge. I went on a search for photo’s of the shawl and while looking through the google search, I found a link to a pattern on ravelry based on this shawl from the show. You can find it HERE. I plan on doing this soon, though since I knit so slowly I may finish it by next year. I wonder if they have a crochet version? So anyway, since I like to wrap up around the house since the hubby keeps it cold in the winter because he is always hot, and a tighty wad, this will come in perfectly for me to wear around the house. I may use my Lion brand Wool Ease in Walnut, my favorite yarn and color right now and has been for the past 2 years. I already have a winter hat made that will match, and gauntlets though I need to make new ones because the ones I have are too small for my big hands.
Enjoy the photo’s I found on google and go watch the movie. Its very umm should I say sad. I mean really, this girl can’t catch a break for nut’in. I really like historical based movies and though I don’t like a bunch of serious things to watch, I really enjoyed this one, almost as much as I love BBC’s version of Jane Eyre or The Secret Garden. Those are just a few of my favorite “drama” style movies. I love action movies and romantic comedies the best.
