A knitted Princess Shawl and Swirl Hat for my youngest granddaughter, Hailey, for Christmas.
What do you make a 9 year old for Christmas? It’s such a tough age. And given that I had made the Zuzu’s Cowl and Seaforth Beanies for the two older girls (Rebecca and Jordyn), I didn’t want Hailey to feel left out.
I certainly increased my knitting skills and am now a much more confident lace knitter. Both patterns are very well written – no charts, so that really helped and they both are great beginner projects.
Pinterest and Ravelry are great resources of inspiration as we all know and I found these great patterns.
And here’s my little “princess” Hailey all decked out in her plum colored princess shawl with a silver grey trim.
