Can't Wait to Cast On This One

My 4 YO granddaughter has been wanting me to knit her a sweater and it had to have a pocket or pockets.  Ha!   When they get an idea in their head, they don't let go of it or change it.

I've been looking on Ravelry and Pinterest and Knitting Central for a girls' sweater pattern with pockets for over a year.  Then, one day, this popped up at me:  Patches & Pockets from (free registration required.)  Ravelry link here.

I can't wait to CO this sweater!  Instead of using Cascade yarn as suggested, I'm going to use Caron's Simply Soft in Fushia & Purple. 

The Cascade yarn would have cost me between $85-$95 to make this sweater.  Caron's Simply Soft cost about $18 plus shipping.  That's more my budget, esp.;for a child's sweater that they will out grow very fast.
