I ended up making up my own pattern for some fingerless gloves: (More details on my ravelry page here)
And she had told me she liked this hat pattern, so I was able to sneak in the Regina Hat as a surprise for her too:
I mailed them off this last week and I am happy to say she recieved them well! I love this pic she took of her in her matching set:
I love knitting for people who send pics of them/their kids/etc wearing the items!!!!
