A while back, we went to the ordination of our youth minister. His 4 year old daughter, Elana, reminded me I knit a sweater for her baby sister. She had the color and buttons down cold and described it to a tee.
So, I said, "Would you like me to knit you a sweater and what color would you like...pink?" - knowing full well pink would be her choice. She told me she wanted a sweater with buttons and yes, pink would be her choice.
So, when I went to Windsor Button I picked up some Plymouth Encore in a pink that borders on Pepto Bismol pink. I got some white and then used some purple I had in my stash. I combined two patterns to make the cardigan - I used Drive Thru for the sweater directions and Isabella for the yoke pattern.
Originally, I wanted to find flower buttons but nothing appealed to me so I ended up with matching pink buttons that actually let the flower yoke stand out better.
It went in the mail and should be her Easter surprise - what a perfect Easter sweater!
