To celebrate the release of Lada, I am offering 25% off until Tuesday Oct. 17th, discount applied at checkout, no coupon code needed.

Lada is the goddess of Summer, in counterpoint to Marzanna in Polish folktales. As Marzanna dies, Lada is reborn, bringing fertility and Summer harvests. Lada is a top-down 3/4th shawl, large enough to feel like a blanket. Knit in fingering weight yarn, it is lightweight and provides light warmth in the evening Summer breeze, or knit it through the Spring and Summer season in time for the Fall chill as Lada returns to the underworld. Lada was purposely designed with an easy to remember lace pattern and simple construction to allow for an enjoyable, meditative knit.
