Laera means learning. It is named for my fiber friends at knit night group. These awesome women taught and encouraged me, and set me on the path to becoming a knitter and designer. Laera is knit from the bottom up, with a wide lace hem and matching lace at the arms and neck, and is meant as a companion for the matching Laera top.
