Forgot to mention that the little girl has beautiful carrot orange hair, which means I agonized over what color to make her hat and shirt. However, I think the greeny-blue color will really be cute on her.

I used this pattern for the shirt (with modifications, of course): http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/81...ages=&newreg=1

Sun hat pattern: http://yarnpoetry.blogspot.com/2011/...e-pattern.html

I got the idea for the monster hat here: http://www.cyn.ca/knit/patterns/brainmonster/

Oh, and I just mailed it off today! Can't wait to see if they like it!

Thanks for looking!

I'd love to see that hat on her hair. I say, what's not to like. Let us know how the little ones like their gifts, please.

Yeah, I hope my friend will send me pictures of the kids in their stuff. If she does, I'll see if I can get permission to post them here.

I thought maybe my friend would get the package today, but I haven't heard anything. Patience! Patience!!!
