After the creation of Phaenna, Marina thought decided to create a pair of fingerless mitts to match it! So, here it comes!! A beautiful lace pattern for you with a lots of love to add to your Charites Collection.
In Greek mythology, Charites (Greek: Χάριtes, pronounced [kʰárites]) or Graces are Goddesses personifying charm, grace, and beauty. In Roman mythology they were known as the Gratiae. The Charites’ major mythological role was to attend the Olympians, particularly during feasts and dances. They enjoy poetry, singing, and dancing! Charites make roses grow, have myrtles and roses as attributes, and the flowers of spring belong to them! Homer wrote that they were part of the retinue of Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and beauty! They were generally considered to be the immortal daughters of Zeus and Eurynome.
Although the Graces usually numbered three, like the Nymphs and the Horae, they vary in number. Depending on the poet, and the region they came from, there are differences in how many Graces there are, what their names were, and who their parents were. The Spartan Lacedaemon, son of Taygete, instituted 2 Graces in his homeland, Cleta and Phaenna!
Cleta (Greek: Κλήτα) is the goddess of Fame and Glory!
Each bundle contains the yarn you will need to complete your project. Don’t forget to check out the kit for Phaenna as well to create your matching set.
