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.

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.
