This is the stanza that inspired the name for this week's pattern, the Sweet Counsels Tam.
"Ah, gentle ladies, it makes me cry,
To think how many counsels sweet,
How much long and wise advice
The husband from the wife despises!"
Those of you who read the paper and the blog might notice that the pattern in today's paper is for the Truth Finds Honest Tam, which was published along with Math4Knitters, Crafty Living: Show 128.
Consider it a small blast from the recent past. The pattern for the Sweet Counsels Tam will be available starting on June 24, 2012.
