In designer Lee Ann Yazzie's Navajo culture, the wedding basket is a significant object. Lee Ann shares that the wedding basket symbolises that there is always light through the darkness. Drawing on Candice's vision for this issue, Lee Ann imbued this design with the motif from these baskets as well as the notion that, as Native people, they continue to carry on and find their light, while acknowledging all the darkness that their ancestors endured. We are honoured that Lee Ann has shared this special piece of her heritage with us, and we hope that knitters will make and wear them with reverence for all they represent.
Our version of the Ts'aa socks are knit in Bear Paw Sock. Each kit includes a full skein of Ranch Romance and mini skeins of Madmartigan and Namoo
