Dreambird


In my dreams, I soar above the clouds...


Riding the wind with ease... and grace... and freedom...


In real life, I enjoy my dreams in this creation.... The feathers are almost magical as you wrap them around your shoulders...


Pattern:  Dreambird by Nadita
Yarns:  Rowan Kidsilk Haze and Noro Silk Garden Sock 
Needles:  US 5


A special thanks to my daughter who indulged my photo obsession with this shawl and made it look its best. 


It will be a couple of more days until things are back to normal around here.  My Little Men & Co. just touched down in their hometown.  And, I will be enjoying my Little Lady the rest of the week.  Until then, may you soar in your dreams...

Oh Tanna, you have done it again. You have made something so beautiful that it truly is breath taking.

Blessings always dear friend.

Oh it is beautiful! Magazine worthy I say. I was telling my family the other day about my blog friend and how talented you are and and how you could knit anything in just a few days...of course...they had no idea what I was talking about...lol

Debbie said...

I remember that your daughter originally didn't like all the browns you chose. Did she change her mind after seeing the masterpiece all finished? I hope so because that particular pattern and color actually looks just beautiful on her.

I hope you have had the time of your life with the little men (and their mom).

I absolutely LOVE this!! And I want it. So I sent your post to my knitting talent daughter in law and told her I was putting in my order for Christmas early this year. So pretty.

You have a gracious and gorgeous model there for your dream creation. It looks good and of course the last, mama photo, is the best! Enjoy every moment with your little lady this week!

SouthernHeart said...

I am speechless. A beautiful woman wearing a beautiful shawl. It looks as if a gorgeous, rare bird has wrapped his wings around her. Great, great photos. Susan

So beautiful! Your daughter was a great model, although I'd throw a fit if you took a picture of my ass and showed it to the world. Ha-ha. Of course, mine doesn't look good like hers does. Your shawl is just lovely. Fantastic job.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Oh Tanna, how beautiful! The colors in this shawl look perfect for your beautiful daughter, and she looks like a natural model. Have fun with your sweet little lady!

Sandy said...

Well, I have to agree with everyone else here that the shawl and your daughter for both just beautiful. It looks wonderful with jeans, turtleneck
and the necklace. Looks like a page from my favorite catalog, Sundance. Enjoy those grandkids!!
Blessings~

Betsy Brock said...

It's stunning! Did she decide she liked it afterall?

kathy b said...

Gorgeous creation, gorgeous photos. Love your boots too

Vickie said...

Oh Tanna! This is my absolute favorite thing you've done! You are an artist with your yarns! That is beautiful and one of a kind! Your daughter should be in a magazine - at first glance, I thought it was an advertisement. She looks so pretty and your shawl just completed her look. It's gorgeous.

I know you've had some good visiting there! Keep it up! Hugs~~~

Amanda said...

Well that Dreambird is, shall we say...dreamy? I hope you wear it over and over and over again. It truly is one of the most stunning masterpieces you've made. ;-) Love you (even if you did put a big ol' picture of my rear end out there for all to see! LOL!) xoxo here's hoping you have a fun rest of the week with another tiny little dreambird. Until next time...

Tanja said...

The Dream Bird is very smart accessoir!

All images look so harmonious. Just moments of idyll...

Cindy said...

Your new shawl is beautiful and so is your daughter. She does make a great model.
So nice to know you're enjoying your little lady. Your nick-names for your grands are adorable.
Love and hugs, Cindy

Bonnie said...

It's is exquisite, Tanna! Just beautiful. Your daughter is the perfect model and you are the perfect photographer and master at your craft. I love it.

You know your things should be on the covers of Knitting magazines.

Love the setting.

Hello Dear Tanna, What a beautiful shawl. Your daughter and grandson did a beautiful job of modeling it.
Your granddaughter is just precious also. Such delightful and beautiful days spent.

How beautiful! My aunt is an avid knitter (she manages a knitting store in the Village in Houston) and I can't wait to send your post her way. Thank you for sharing! I'm so glad I stumbled on your blog. SO many great things here!

Chatty Crone said...

I thought that was your daughter, but sure when I saw the little guy. She just brought that whole shawl to life - it was gorgeous and so is she. Oh yeah - you too and little one.

ONE WORD : GORGEOUS


Oh, let's be serious Tanna...I can't just do ONE WORD....the word is for your daughter AND the shawl...and the darling grandson too!!! :)

Peg said...

What a beautiful shawl! It looks so pretty on your daughter. I am visiting your blog for the first time, coming via a link at Buttermilk Cottage. I like to knit too. I enjoyed your experience with watercolor and think you are very brave. I tried watercolor and hated it; oil is much more forgiving and fun.

Lauri said...

I am having a hard time keeping up with blog reading and posting lately, but just had to pop in and say how much I love your pictures and your beautiful models! ;-)
