A pattern for Katy's sweater

I have been looking through my knitting books and magazines for a flowered pullover sweater pattern in children's sizes for Katy. And the two finalists are:

DAISY on the left and ROSA REEF on the right. A thank you to LeAnne for suggesting Rosa Reef. I was racking my brains trying to think where I had seen a flowered Zoe Mellor pattern, and she came up with it! I was able to find it on the Rowan website. Daisy is a Kim Hargreaves design from her book Pipsqueaks. Now Daisy would be perfect, except, as you can plainly see, it's a cardigan. But I think I could convert it to a pullover without too much trouble. (Famous last words.) Daisy is knit with Rowan Cotton Glace and Rosa Reef is knit with Rowan Handknit Cotton DK. The Cotton Glace is a lighter weight, so might be better for summer. I suspect I will probably end up knitting both sweaters, it is so hard to choose.

Today's heron count = two.

Both the sweaters are beautiful. I don't think I could decide. I can not wait till one day in the way future that I have grandchildren to knit for. My daughter is ungrateful and will wear nothing I knit her even if she asked for it. Sigh...
