My daughter, (like many little girls I’m sure!), is quite fond of a certain princess with a frosty personality. She simply exudes this spirit of “letting go” everywhere she goes, and it’s quite inspiring. When I saw these two colors of Gherkin’s Bucket Shimmer Sock, my mind immediately thought of my daughter and images of dainty snowflakes falling. This shawl is the culmination of her love of all things frozen and my desire to have something just a little more sophisticated so that she won’t always steal it to wear!
