flower power cardigan

I miss my girl. I miss my boys, too.  I took Libby to the airport last Sunday after winter break.  That was hard.  That stunk.   She was the last child to leave and get back to their lives.  It meant that it was time for me to get back into a routine, too.   It was just one of the best Christmas breaks with my kids.  And not only because Libby started knitting.  (YES!!!!  More on that later!) 

I took these pictures of my girl in her new sweater back over Thanksgiving break.  I just kept forgetting to post them here.  

This is the Flower Power Cardigan that was part of the Fall Knit Collage Knit Along.  
If you ever have the opportunity to do a Knit Collage KAL it is an awesome experience.  Whether you are a beginner or an advanced knitter.  Whether you have never knit a sweater or you are a sweater knitte.  I just can't recommend this Knit Along more.
This is unlike a KAL where you buy the pattern and use the yarn of your choice.  Knitcollage sweaters have a certain look to them and a style all their own.  For this KAL, kits are sold with each pattern and include yarn colors you get to choose.  For this KAL, there were 4 patterns to choose from and when you sign up you have access to all of them.  The patterns aren't released for a while after the KAL ends so this pattern is not available yet.  I'm not exactly sure when she releases her KAL patterns after the KAL.  If you like this you will just need to keep checking her website.  
Amy Small has a team to help you every step of the way.  And the community she builds is amazing.  She adds zoom calls and yoga classes and weekly emails to cheer you on and keep you up to date.  
It's no wonder I wanted to make Libby this sweater... It's like a big girl version of the backpack I made her so many years ago.  (Almost 14 years!)
