Drops of dew on the leaves, the first flowers peeping through the ground and spring showers caressing your skin, all of these things make me realize it’s spring.
Fresh, new and long awaited.
It comes with rain that quickly evaporates to welcome summer.
When Dani from Lioness Arts gifted me a skein of her fabulous BFL Sock in colorway orienteering (one of the best greens ever!) I knew it would become a light and airy shawlette. I’ve designed so many hats last winter that working on an accessory for spring was pure pleasure. The fabulous shade of green almost fooled my mind as I was waiting that any moment I’d smell freshly cut grass and hear lawnmowers. The lace stitch that’d stuck in my mind for a couple of months made my needles click at a supersonic speed and even the fact that I had to redo the ruffle three times didn’t push me away from binding off as soon as possible. I’m so happy with this small shawlette. It’s just perfect.
I’m also truly excited about the photos. This time my Hubby and I asked someone else to join Lete’s Knits photoshoot. I’d love to share with you more about our talented photographer, Marcin Duda, when I show you my next design. I can just say now that I couldn’t be more happier with our work!
There is one more nice thing connected with this design – about an hour ago I just clicked “Send Newsletter” for the first time :-) I don’t like when my inbox gets filled with spam so I decided to send it only once a month. Generally, it will contain the latest news, some sneak peeks of new designs and most importantly subscribers-only discounts. The newsletter with this shawlette has already been sent but if you’d like to purchase it 20% off you can use Malabrigo Madness codes (MalMar2014 or MalMar2 – the 2nd one applies just to the shawlette and it’s for everyone who’d already used the previous code). The codes expire on March 15th, but they can be used on Ravelry or Lete’s Knits website (just paste them to cart to redeem the discount).
Happy knitting everyone!
