Hello Kitty in the making

I have been busy this weekend knitting a hello kitty for my best friend's wedding.  She's a super fan of the hello kitty and I'm knitting her a hello kitty in a wedding dress to go along the elmo she did for her fiance. I have asked her fiance to secretly do some measurement of the elmo so my hello kitty can match with him.  I found this little white flower girl dress this afternoon and will be knitting the body in accordance to the dress.... but its looking really cute at the moment..... only have less than a month to go so I need to start cracking.  Hope she'll like the surprise.

Were-hOowler has real anger management issues.  He's always ready for a fight especially with his enemy Fangular who steals his tomatoes.  He is obsessed with howling at the full moon.  His howling is so loud that it drove his neighbors mad and they all left screaming.....
