Monday Morning Mirth January 28, 2013

It’s Monday! And it’s time for a little party…

One of our most beloved authors is Jane Austin and one of our very favorite stories is her Pride and Prejudice…

Today is the 200th Anniversary of this incredible novel of high culture meeting modern hearts and here at Studio Chic Knits we Celebrate Romance with a little number named after another of her amazing heroines:
Chic Knits Miss Dashwood

Chic Knits Miss Dashwood

Add to Cart

Pattern: Chic Knits *Miss Dashwood*
Gauge: 20 sts/28 rows over 4″
Needles: #6

This lovely lace shrug is named, but of course, after Elinor Dashwood, who, like many of Austen’s women, embodies someone who is tied to cultural propriety yet in the end, is shaped by the authentic passionate heart.


Happy Anniversary, Miss Austen, and happy knitting! :)
