Grace's hat, mittens, scarf

Grace is my friend Jenny's 5-year-old daughter. She is also my husband's goddaughter. I got this great idea to knit her a scarf, mitten and hat set. I used my mom's mitten pattern, which took awhile to get the hang of but now I love it. I didn't measure well so the thumbs don't match up perfectly. I knit the matching scarf with some fun-fur yarn (can't remember which), then got the ingenius idea to make a hat with the fun fur as trim and pom pom. Adorable, if I do say so myself. And, using Wool-ease for the solid and on-sale fun fur, the whole set probably only cost about $5. A great gift for little girls.
