Lulu turned 8 a few weeks ago and today she came to collect her gifts. My nieces are angels, the most enthusiastic gift-receivers in the whole world . They accept all my handmade offerings and use them to death. This year I made a Lulu a beanie based on this pattern and added dingle dangle plaits. It’s a Year 8 fave although I had to get growly a few weeks ago when two boys used the dingle dangle plaits to tie some of their class mates to the radiator pipes.
The set was completed with a simple neck warmer in matching colours. I did the button holes while she watched.
This is going to be the Holiday Of Sewing. Love it.
