This Girl Is On Fire

Maybe you can tell by the toe pop there, but this girl is going places.  She’s on fire and whatever she does in life, she’s doing it with determination and a strong sense of who she is.

This is the girl who can tell you exactly what she wants in a sweater.  She can tell you exactly which herb I steeped in the cucumber sorbet recipe (basil).  She can spot zucchini in a recipe from 5 miles away.  She gives the biggest toughest hugs you have ever gotten.  Her big heart is covered by a very pragmatic outlook.  She’s a tough cookie with a soft melted chocolate center.

This sweater?  It’s exactly what she ordered.

Prairie Fire by Tin Can Knits

Yarn:  Three Irish Girls Springvale DK in Mimsy.  Or as we like to call it, mint green.

Mods:  Taking Lily’s measurements for the sweater was very enlightening.  I know she is a tall, slim child.  She measured 4-6 years in the chest, almost a ladies XS in the sleeve length, 2-4 years in the upper arm, and 6-8 years in the hem to underarm.  Yikes, what do I do with those measurements?!  I decided to jump somewhere in the middle and make the 6-8 year old size then just lengthen the arms to the correct length.

This sweater was my Revellenics project, but I was still one sleeve short on the final day of the Olympics.  My Girl on Fire is just happy to have the sweater ready for the cool fall weather.
