I asked my daughter what her ideal sweater would be like: "Smooth, and Faaaancy!" she said, with the idea conveyed with a hip shake and waving arms. It turns out "Faaaancy!" meant she wanted pictures on it.
What's Your Fancy is the perfect faaaancy sweater for children who keep changing their mind about what pictures should go on the sweater; embroider it when the knitting is done so they don't have time to change their minds again. For this sweater, the Whole of Outer Space was requested, but you can embroider whatever your little one fancies! Optional picot trim can be modified for those with less frilly tastes.

I was taught from childhood that not knowing how to make something is no reason why you can't find out how to make something.
This lesson has served me well, particularly when I taught myself to crochet and to knit several years ago. I now design as well, and enjoy the designing process as much as I enjoy the making process.
